ReWFOairtels, 9/19/69 and 9/24/69; Buairtel, 9/24/69. 

Enclosed for the Bureau are two separate news 
releases regarding the BUF. 

WFO is of the opinion that the release of either of 
these items vould result in acute embarrassment to -the BUF 
and cause internal dissention within its ranks. It will, 
in all probability, cause Black leaders to v iew each other 
with suspicion and could possibly result in 4SX3B9BHHK, 
resigning from the BUF. 

As the Bureau Is aware, the timing of the release 
of these stories is of paramount Importance and the number one 
story should be released immediately after the BUF confronts 
church groups and while the story is still fresh in the minds 
L f the public. 



The second item should be released about one week 
k before the NMC comes to Washington, D. C, in order to counter 
activities of that organization as well as to embarr ass th e 
BUF, or at s uch time as WFO learns tha d Sa^S^g^SIffiflljl 1 Ai^m 

j have received letters from the NMC stating that 

NMC d^jesrnot plan to compensate the BUF for those NMC 
followers [who visit WDC for the proposed peace demonstration.

BUF MAGES FRAUDULENT CAMPAIGN 
AGAINST LOCAL CHURCHES 



According to a voman member of the Black United 
Front vho "was there when ^e^^M^jf^t^^^ called the 
first meeting to form the Front", the current BUF campaign 
against white religious groups in the Washington area is a 
fraud. 

The lady who desired to remain anonymous told a 
(name of newspaper) reporter that at a meeting held on 
September 18, 1969, at the Douglas Memorial Methodist Church, 
11th and H Streets, N.E., some shocking statements were made 
by BUF officials. 

Chocked with emotion, this lady who "atten ds 
church every Sunday, rain or shine" , stated that the^fWHGB^ : /J 
^ a ^^ m ^^ tHaa ^ Kg ^ s ^ l ^l^USBSB^^Ih J1 ^ in announcing plans at j 
the September meeting to move on churches and synagogues in / ; 
the Washington area stated the BUF did not contemplate 
receiving money from the churches , but planned to use the 
confrontations as "a political thing to show churches are 
wealthy racist organizations". 

The lady related that at this point in the meeting 
a young woman said "when we make demands they should be so 
large the churches will be unable to pay" and suggested the 
BUF ask the synagogues for $4 billion and Protestant churches 
for $2 billion, "just to make sure they will be unable to 
meet the terms", ysp iht frk is alleged to have replied the amounts 
to be demanded hacTnot been set but would be quite high. 

The woman further alleged that vhen ^^a^j^g ^^ ^ y 
was asked what would happen if one of the churches ottered a 
substantial sum such as $25,000 he replied'- "The BUF would ' 
have no choice but to accept the money." 



■-/:'.

» « 



Describing the atmosphere as anything but religious, 
the woman, close to tears while relating this story, remarked: 
"I don't know how that preacher can make a sermon in his churdi 
on Sunday and then go out and demand money from other churches 
when he knows in his own heart he's playing games." 

The BUF has demanded reparations from several area 
churches beginning on September 7, when a group of 50 blacks 
stood before the congregation of the Resurrection Lutheran 
Church in Arlington and demanded 15 per cent of the capital 
budgets of Arlington churches and synagogues. They sharply 
criticized the churches' all -white congregation, particularly 

This was followed on September 21, by a "black man's 
manifesto" read at St. Stephen and the Incarnation Episcopal 
Church, demanding $25,000 cash and 50 per cent of the annual 
income of the church for what was termed church- sanctioned 
racism. 

On September 22, at a press conference held shortly 
after 8:00 p.m., on the steps of B'nai Israel Synagogue, 4606 
16th Street, N.W. , a representative of the BUF asked the 
Washington area Jewish community to pa y $10 mil lion in repar- 
ations while on Sunday, September 28, ^SQ3HB| asked the 
National Presbyterian Church for $2 million in reparations at 
a talk at the 11:00 a.m. service that date.

MEMBER OF BUF EXPRESSES 
SHOCK AT HOBSON STAND 



Washington, D. C, Oct. --An official of the Black United Front, 
obvi ously angry, e xpressed shock at a report he had received 
that — rT'T'MB^Br militant black leader, had agreed to speak 
at a November rally of the New Mobilization Committee to End 
the War in Vietnam to be held in Washington, D. C, only if 
the NMC promised not to take up a collection for the BUF. 

Clearly upset and bitter over ^HBHBfr decision, the 
BUF official, who asked his name not be used, stated the BUF, 
recalling the violent confrontation between police and members 
of the black community which took place the day Resurrection 
City was invaded- and torn down by Federal and local authorities, 
had asked the NMC for a payment of $25,000 to compensate blacks 
should a recurrence of such brutal attacks take place. 

The BUF official stated it was feared white radicals 
would create a confrontation which would spill over Into 
neighborhoods populated by blacks who comprise oyer 70% of the 
population and result in indiscriminate' tear-gas attacks on 
demonstrators which would work undue hardship and suffering 
on innocent black people. 

The BUF official stated ^ffBBB|»actions clearly 
revealed him to be an "Uncle Tom", willing to sell out the 
interests of the black community to white intellectuals and 
radicals, thus exposing his black brothers to a violent 
confrontation with the police should disorders take place 
during peace movement demonstrations. He expressed dismay 
Hobson would place political expediency and personal gain 
before the welfare of the black community and wondered if 
Hobson was, indeed, a suitable candidate for the District of 
Columbia School Board during a critical period in which the 
needs of black children was of paramount importance.

9/30/69 captioned "BPP Clothing For Children Program, BM. ,, 

Referenced SFalrtel and LHM pointed out that about 
5,000 pounds of clothing were given away In New York City 
on 9/28/69. During this giveaway the BPP distributed 
propaganda material. Information appearing in. this LHM 
disclosed that the news media gave this event considerable 
coverage . 

Referenced NYairtel and LHM disclosed that (j 

approximately four tons of clothing, stored in Flushing, 
New York, was given by the Junior Chamber of Commerce to a 
Chicago-based hate group known as the "Young Lords." The 
Young Lords turned this clothing over to the Panthers for the 
giveaway. 

The above presents an interesting possibility for 
effective counterintelligence against the BPP. New York should 
assess the press and TV publicity given this program and 
thereafter forward a specific counterintelligence proposal 
designed to negate this publicity. Handle promptly.

Also Known As 
Black Panther Party for Self Defense 

According to its official newspaper, the Black Panther 
Party (BPP) was started during December, 1966, in Oakland, Calif- 
ornia, to organize black people so they can take control of the 
life, politics, and the destiny of the black community. " £as 
organized by BOBBY GEORGE SEALE, BPP Chairman, and HUEY P. NEWTON, 
BPP Minister of Defense. NEWTON is presently serving a sentence 
of 2 to 15 years on a conviction of manslaughter in connection 
^with the killing of an Oakland police officer. 

The official newspaper, "The Black Panther", which (( 
further describes itself as the "Black Community News Service , 
states that the 3P? advocates the use of guns and guerrilla 
tactics in its revolutionary program to end oppression of the blacK 
people. Residents of the black community are urged to arm themselves 
against the police who" are consistently referred to in the publi- 
cation as "pigs" who should be killed. 

"The Black Panther" issue of September 7, 19^8, contains . 
an editorial oy BPP Minister of Education, GEORGE MASON KJ7.1.,.-, which 
ends with the following: • 

"Black men. Black people, colored persons of America, 

revolt everywhere! Arm yourselves. The only culture worth keeping ( 

is a revolutionary culture. Change. Freedom everywhere. Dynamite. 

Black Power. Use the gun. Kill the pigs everywhere. 

Included in the introduction to an article appearing in ^ 
the October 5, 1968, edition of "The Black Panther" is the statement, 
11 ...we wiJl not dissent from American Government. We will overohrcv^ 
it". 

Issues of "The BJac»i Panther" regularly contain quotation? 
from the writings of Chairman KAO Tse-tung of the Peop]f's Republic 
of China and feature MAO's statement that "political power grows / 
out of the barrel of a gun." / ' 

The national headquarters of the BPP is '.ocated at >°^

1968, at which time the ?LP reasserted its objective of the 
'establishment of a militant working class movement based on 
Marxism-Leninism. This is to be accomplished through the Party's 
overall revolutionary strategy of raising the consciousness of 
the people and helping to provide ideological leadership in the 
working class struggle for state power 

The source also advised that at the Second National 
Convention MILTOri ROSEN was unanimously re-elected National 
Chairman of the FLP and LEVI LAUB, FRED JEROME, JARED ISRAEL,

Government JPropeVty, namely, an M-14 rifle found. ln£B89B^

The Philadelphia BPP has announced that two of Its

fail to achieve the cohesivetiess and support it previously 
enjoyed. To insure this, Detroit will watch the direction . 
taken by the "new party" and submit counterintelligence 
proposals for its disruption. 

League of Revolutionary Black Workers (LRBW) 

Referenced communication concerning the LRBW 
indicates that on 6/25/69 a commercial checking account 
was opened by the Dodge Revolutionary Union Movement 
(DRUM) at the Bank of the Commonwealth, Detroit, Michigan. 
The check used to open this account was in the amount of 
$5,000.00 and drawn on the account of the Inter-Religious 
Foundation for Community Organization, Inc. (IFCO). 

DRUM is a branch of the LRBW. Clearly, the LRBW 
is a union organization; in fact, it offered a slate of black 
candidates in recent union elections at two Chrysler plants 
in the Detroit area. 

The Detroit Counterintelligence Program might 
profitably utilize this information by providing for its 
indirect dissemination to the UAW and Teamsters Unions in 
Detroit. Hopefully, this would result in the unions 
leveling a fusillade at the LRBW for operating as a labor 
union while being financed by a tax-exempt religious 
organization which would; 

1. Bring pressure on DRUM and the LRBW from 
the United States Department of Labor to 
file an annual report concerning funding 
and organization. (Through liaison with 
the Labor Department, it has been 
determined that this report has not been 
filed). 

2. Serve to discredit IFCO with the white church 
groups which supply it with funds. 

3. Instill doubts in the minds of the rank and 
file of LRBW and DRUM concerning the honesty of 
its leadership; and possibly with good reason, 
since initial checks with the DRUM account at 
the Bank of the Commonwealth seem to indicate 
that a portion of the $5,000.00 was used for the 
personal expenses of the union officers. v

This is to request approval for the attached 
memorandum and letter to be given by the Crime Records 
Division to a friendly news media. 

Robert Franklin Williams fled this country in 1961 
following his indictment by the State of North Carolina on 
kidnapping charges growing out of a racial incident in Monroe, 
North Carolina. Williams resided in Cuba until 1966 when he moved 
to Peking', China. Shortly after arriving in Peking, he wrote 
a letter to Fidel Castro bitterly complaining of his treatment ( 
while in Cuba but pledging his continuing support for the Cuban 
revolution. The Cuban Embassy in Peking, China, refused to 
transmit the letter by diplomatic channels to Havana, Cuba, 
and Williams sent it to friends who distributed it in the U.S. 

Williams returned to this country in 9/69 at Detroit, 
Michigan, where he is presently on bond pending legal actions 
against him on a Federal Unlawful Flight to Avoid prosecution - 
Kidnapping warrant and a kidnapping indictment in the St ate) of 
North Carolina. *■ .^tn'.r ,Ji 

It is felt that publication of this letter will show ' 
the public the true nature of Williams and his revolutionary 
thinking. It will help counteract statements he is now freely 
making to the press to the effect that he only wants to help 
the Negro cause in this country. Although copies of this letter 

(have been received by the Bureau from sources, its distribution 
has been sufficiently widespread so as not to compromise any of 
these sources. 'j^^/^^b

September 24, 1969 



Robert Franklin Williams, in 1961, led militant 
civil rights activities in Monroe, North Carolina, which 
led to armed conflict between whites and blacks. During 
one such incident a white couple was held for several hours 
in Williams' house. As a result Williams, along with 
several others, was Indicted on a charge of kidnapping. 
When Williams could not be found by local authorities, a 
Federal warrant was Issued charging him with Unlawful 
Flight to Avoid -prosecution - Kidnapping. 

Williams fled to Cuba where he and his family 
resided until 1966, He continued to publish "The Crusader," 
a hate type newsletter in which he advocated that Negroes 
arm themselves and fight in the streets for their freedom. 
Ho also appeared on Radio Havana over which he broadcast 
the same type of propaganda. 

In 1966 Williams and family moved to Peking, China, 
claiming that he was no longer safe in Cuba and he was not 
being given support In his fight for Afro-American freedom. 
In China he continued to publish "The Crusader" and in 1968 
he visited Tanzania where he met with U. S. leaders of the 
Republic of New Africa, a black separatist organization, 
which had elected him as Its president, in 1969 he again f 
returned to Tanzania and from there returned to the U. S., <r 
landing in Detroit, Michigan. Be was arrested upon his 
arrival and released on bond. J 

According to news releases since his return to 
U. S., Williams has been quoted as saying he returned because 
its time for the Negro to serve notice he is no longer running 



I*nd he (Williams) wants to help his people in their struggle , y^ 
-for freedom. In a letter dated August 28, 1966, upon his JfcZ?

for assletanoe In his escape from U. 8. and stated he 
would always be a friend of the Cuban Revolution, He 
protested that he had not been given the proper support 
in his campaign for the Afro-American struggle. Be 
accused Castro's subordinates of conspiring against him 
and claimed these officials showed no interest in the 
Afro-American struggle. He concluded by stating it was 
his revolutionary duty to report to Castro the sabotage 
being directed by Cuban official* against the Negro 
freedom movement In the U. S.

Later I was able to get donations and contributions fron 
importers inside the United States for publications t records 
: -d~ 12a ts rials that I needed for Ey work.. Also, rany of the listeners 

Radio Free Dixie donated musical recordings currently popular 
■20115 the Afro-Anericsn masses to be used on Radio Free Dixie* 

'..'every these publications and records when sent were taken frcs 
he call, taken frori the Post Office and sonetises when things were 
ont by boat they were taken froia the boat. And there v;ere instances 
tien even personal things purchased by persons In our Eoven-ent in 
hc--Ststcs-cr.fi sent to ne v:ore deliberately taken* .They were taken - 
?«n the pauch end taken fro" the Foreign Ministry* Vhen I went to 
Foreign i-'.lnistry to complain, I was always given the accuse 
t -they did not know who was responsible for this and that thc-y 
id not know who was taking these things out of the puuch, 5o ; this 
andicapped our struggle very r-uch» Later, I discovered that sorse 
f the newspapers and recordings ■■t/ore showing up other places and ; 
iiey were showing up Here and nore in the Foreign Ministry. The 
orcign Ministry, the officials there, were allowing mercenaries, 
brieves end pirates to practice piracy against our struggle and 
igainst the property cf our struggle and the things we needed to 
.-'Jrk with. Also this was a way to cripple our broadcast and to wea- 
ken our publication and to keep us behind so that we could not keep 
p with the news. I even complained to the Party. about these dis- 
: on or able: practices being carried out. There were many other Algeri- 
ans living in Cuba and they were able to use the pouch. The Amlgos 
e Cuba, an organization of Americans living there, was able to 
eceive things fron the pouch. Kany of then and their representatives 
vere able to travel in and out of Cuba to nake purchases in the 
Jnited States and Canada and to have these things sent back by ship 
:md they were able to receive all kinds of things that did not have 
anything to do with struggle. Even after I found It impossible to-.-- ■ 
rely on the Foreign Kinistry, the pouch and the Kaifoisa shipping 
lines, I requested through Con-nandante Peniero's office that my 
wife be allowed to' go to Canada so that she could contact our • 
friends and purchase the records and pick up the magazines and books. 
re-id all the things pertaining to our struggle that we needed. I was 
repeatedly told that this would be Impossible because there v/ere so 
-=any repatriates returning to Cuba that there was no roon on the 
ship for her to travel. I found out later that this was untrue 
because other Americans were traveling fron Havana to Canada and 
into the United States and back to Cuba at will and as nuch as they 
wanted to i later discovered that this was just a plot to try to 
v.'reck our struggle and to crash our organization, and was done in 
"onjtinction with forces insJ.de the U.S«, including the U.S. Corc.-.unist 
urt;,^ which was opposed to our nothod of struggle and which advocated 
policy of nonviolence in support of IVev.Knrtln Luther King.

" After our pro.^ra^p Radio Free Dixie, hocavm^jrj successful and 
it ".-.'as noted throughout tho world that it was a^Succossful "broad- 
cast that had groat ir.paet en tho i'frc-^oric:;!! rari^r; in tho U.S. , 
after sany international publication:, in tho United States. Latin 
America, Asia and Africa had written a #roat deal about the- impact of 
our pro^ran the power was reduced ao low that our listeners inside 
the U.S. could not hear the broadcast.. Some who could hear Eadio 
. Free Dixie heard it covins through the station at Santa Clara* The 
Havana transmission was so weak that coueti^es they could not even 
■ hear it in Florida. This was direct and deliberate sabotage co.ra- 

Dited to protect U.S. racisn and imperialism from being exposed .for 
•.itp brutal racist crimes against the Afro-American people* It was 
.also done at the instigation of Americans living in Cuba* They v:ere 
l*the first to o ^^e that this radio prosran should be abolished. 
In order to naintain a false linage as suooortcrs of our cause f 
while at the sane tine dealing it a crippling blow, Padio Di fusion 
/ reduced the power of the facilities over which we were broadcast ins* 

Our publication s The Crusader, had become popular throughout 
■the world and was beinc used as a manual on arsod self -defense oy 
freedom fighters throughout the United States, however, the core 
popular it became the riore difficulty we experienced in setting it 
printed in Cuba.. There was always sojj:e excuse about paper, or we 
had to go through a lot of red tape which would iseke it icpocsible 
to publioh some issues while others cane out extremely late. V.'e 
found it i-apossible to continue publishing under these conditions! 
We also had the case where sone copies of The Crusader were forced 
and distributed throughout the -world* This forged copy was an attack 
on the Soviet Union and surreptitiously anti-China and was Oosir-ned 
to makeny exile in Cuba difficult. I reported this to the Party and 
had hoped that I would £et sone cooperation to help facilitate r.y 
Baking a public announcement on it or a statement that the October 
I965 Special Edition of The Crusader was not published by ae and 
that it was a forged. copy not published by friendly forces, but I 
v:as unable to get any cooperation from the Party as far as leaking 
this public announcement. 

In many instances also our nail was held up. It was on soine 
.occasions sent back to the United States but the people in the 
States continued to contact ne, Some sent the letters back by 
people traveling to Cuba to show that the Hsbana post Office had 
stamped then return to sender address unknown* On soec occasions 
long distance telephone callers wore informed that I was unavailable. 
This coi.ipletely severed the linen of communications between -ny 
co-workers and ^c. After the request for Ky wife to fro to Canada 
and take care of the business there was denied I asked that sor;,c

members of our organization and Is'cgro Journalists be allowed to 
visit Cuba. This was also denied. All Hegro Journalists who applied 
for visas to enter Cuba were denied visas while white reactionary 
'lournalists from the capitalist press were being admitted fro* all 
over the world* The Foreign Ministry systematically barred all 
Kegroes, v:ho were coming to confer with ne in relation to our 
struggle, out of Cuba. Some Negro members of our organization* 
traveling on our moiey got as far as Prague and wore barred from 
Cuba and were forced to return to the U.S. after their funds were 
exhausted. This caused us to soend a lot of dollars; dissipating . 
our funds. There were other cases wherein many of our people went 
to Mexico hoping to cone to Cuba to confer with me about the strug- 
gle and set up communi cation lines so that we could coordinate our 
Efforts, but all of this was sabotaged and all of the piano frus- 
trated by officials and functionaries of the Cuban Government 
especially those in the Foreign Ministry and Commandant c ?en1^ro e s 
office, Commandant e Peniero's office was one of the main factors 
In bringing about the frustrating conditions of our struggle, the 
very man that had been assigned by you to take care of me. 

The only official in the Cuban Government who showed any genuine 
interest in our struggle and who had really promised to help was 
Conaandante Che Guevara. Commandant e Guevara called ne into h*-s office 
and told ne that he believed that my 'policy of self -defense was cor- 
rect and he showed no an editorial in the newspaper Hoy, an editorial 
in support and praise of Rev. Hart in Luther King He told me that he 
disagreed with that view and that he had. some disagreement with some 
of the officials of the government and that he was going to help ne 
all that he could. Ke told me he was going to the interior of Cuba 
and promised he would return in one month and telephone me as soon 
as he arrived in the city. However, he stated that while he was gone 
it would not be necessary to wait the full thirty days for solution 
of some of the xainor problems that I had. He said that Captain 
Arr ozones would take care of ' my problems while he was away* Later, 
I discovered that Captain Arrogones was unavailable. After thirty 
dayc Conmendante Che* Guevara failed to return to Havana. So I did 
not get any help from the Cuban Government and I did not receive 
attention as 'far as the problems of ny strangle were concerned. My 
interview with Conmandantc Che Guevara was one day before the letter 
that you read from hi.m over radio and television was dated. On the 
day before that letter was dated he g-'ive ne the understanding that 
he was going into the Interior and that he was not leaving the country 
again, but thot he would return to Havana, contact me and give go the 
needed assistance when he returned. Despite the fact that I had seen 
Commandant e Guevara the day before the letter was dated to you, in 
wriich you said that he had gone and joined another revolution, I 
find thin hard to believe after he told me that he was coming back 
in thirty days and that he had no waiting for hin and relying en him

were admitted to the Tri -Continental Conference, (Ajlso, I was 

•'living in Havana at the tine and as a representative of the Afro- • 
American people and I was not given an invitation to attend the 
Tri -Continental Conference. I was barred from the Conference and 
was only adnitted after the question had been raised by cone of 
.the delegates from Africa, and only after they had ashed why X 
lived in Havana. and I was not inside the .Conference halls and 
that there were others there who did not have as rauch in common 
Kith the peoples of the Conference as 1 did. Later they were 
told in the Conference hy Captain Osmeny Ci enf uegos thct I had

By invitation^ that I was refusing to attend and that I was 

-boycotting the Conference, So the Africans came back and told me 
this and to ce that I should cone into the Conference and that 

. thcyjiad been told that I had an invitation and wouldn't accept 
it, i told then that this was not true* They then said that they ■ 
could. not see why a can in a high position like Osnany would tell 
a 'lie about a little thing like that. I told then if they were 

: so sure I would go with then to see. Wc VVent to the Conference 
headquarters and no credentials had been r.ado out and there was 
no invitation there for nc but this was a scheme to keep all 
Afro-American revoliiticnaries and other true revolutionaries out 
of the conference » The conference was being manipulated especially 
to keep Afro-Ancr leans out and this was being done by officials 
of the Cuban Government and not by the conference as a whole. I 
found this to be incompatible with your policy 9 the policy that 
you hud always advocated * 1 know that you have always advocated 
a policy of racial equality and brotherhood and I do not see how 
thio could have been done with your knowledge « ' .

'Communist Party wore beyond reproach* Some of these people arc highly 
suspect? as agents of the U.S.* Government and the C.I 4 A« yet they 
were able to do a very effective Job* They were able to completely 
sabotage and derail our struggle. They were able to do what the 
. racist and imperialist government of the United States was never 
able to do while I was there and that was to demoralize no and to 
frustrate my efforts to the point that they were all but ineffective t 

Also during the Tri -Continental Conference, one of the persons 
who was invited there was a fellow who came from Tanzania, Africa 
nosed D.H. Kansur, Kansur was invited and wss supposed to be a ' . 
newspaperman working far "Uhuru' : . He had been to Cuba the previous 
year. At that time he was traveling in the company of a military 

^delegation and someone introduced to me S3 the vice-minister of 
Defence,, all from Tanzania. He was housed along with vice-minister 
and the military delegates in the Cuban protocal house t I did not 

. know him previously but during that visit he was brought to my 
house by representatives of ICA? along with two men, the vice 
minister and one of the military officials, Mansur told me at that 
time that there was a "possibility that Tanzania would establish 
■diplomatic relations with Cuba the following year and that he was 
going' to' be appointed the ambassador to Havana* 

On his second visit, during the Trl -Continental Conference, 
Kans.ur stayed at the Hotel Capri and was given special privileges 
and was able to summond Osmany to the hotel whenever he saw fit t 
He was also seen and I personally saw him with Commindante Peniero. 
Ke told me that since I was having difficulty in Cuba that if I 
wanted to see anybody in the government s other than Fidel Castro, 
that he could arrange it for me. He said that Fidel Castro was the 
only official in the Cuban Government that he could not arrange an 
interview with for me. He also told me that officials of the Cuban 
Government were -.soliciting people to try to smear me and make me 
lock bad and that they were deliberately working against me and 
that he would advise as a friend that I try to leave Cuba* When I 
had mot Kansur the previous year when he was visiting with the 
military delegation and the vice minister of Defense of Tanzania he 
appeared to be a revolutionary person and was supposed to have been 
working with Cuban officials, . • - • . 

D«H. Kansur told me that he expected to go through Nov; York for 
some business that he had to take care of in the United Nations soon, 
I asked him how soon and he replied that he was not sure when 'but 
wanted to know why I had asked- X told him that I had something . 
that I wanted to send t.o the States. He replied that If 1 had . .

anything to send that I could send it' by the "Chief of Secret 
'Police" of Tanzania who was in Cuba on a cecret mission and was 
supposed to leave within a couple of days> Ko told me that this 
chief of the secret police v:as in Cuba attending the Tri -Conti- 
nental .Conference but that the Cuban government did not. know his 
true .identity but that whatever I wanted to send— would bo alright 
to send by him because he would be traveling with diplomatic 
' immunity to the United Nations. I then told him that I may went 
to. send sone money to the Negroes in the United States, a personal 

• contribution that I was making to them. He said that he thought . 
that this minister would take it but that he would talk to him 
first, He later returned and said that the minister would leave 
in two days and that if I had whatever I wanted to send ready o^ 
the night before he left that there would be no problem.. He said 

" that the man was alright, he bad diplomatic immunity and that he 
■ was there in Cuba on a secret mission. The night be-fore the 
. "minister" was supposed to leave I brought $1550 dollars and a 
letter written in code and gave, it to Hansur to be sent to some 
Afro-American people working in the struggle to help them out. 
I took the envelop containing the me s sedge and the money to the 
JLobby of the Hotel Habana Libre. I gave Kan cur the envelop and the 
"money end he went upstairs while I waited in the lobby for his 
return. Ke stayed upstairs for about 15 minutes and returned in 
the company 'of Comr^andante Peniero and the man he had pointed 
out to me as the Chief of the Secret Police of Tanzania* Kansur 
end Peniero walked to a deserted side of the hotel that led to 
the cafeteria and talked for three or four minutes, then the two 
of thca passed back through the lobby and went out of the hotel 
through the door leading to the Poiinosia Dining room. Even though 
he knew I was there waiting for him, he did not return that night. 
..The next day when I saw him, I asked him why did he not return. 
He said for me not to worry and voluntarily injected that he had 
not discussed my business with Conmandsnte Peniero because. "I 
know thoce people don't like you and are working against you, 
but the 'red beard* is a friend of mine and I went out to talk to 
him." He said "that his. friend 'red beard' was the head of the 
. Cuban secret police. ■ . 

Ke told me later, after the Tri -Continental Conference that 
he served as guide and .translator for Osmany and other Cubans who 
wore visiting and working, in .Vifrica, He also told me thot the 
Cuban Government, In conjunction with t he Soviet Government was 
trying to break relations and wreck the union between Tanganyika 
and Zanzibar, because the Cubans, Soviets and East Germans wanted 
to use Zanzibar as a base to operate in Africa to tvy to subvert 
the African governments* He said that there were \wo factions in 

• the government in 'Dar es Salaam and that one faction, backed £>j

they wanted to bro^-up the union beoauso t^M felt that Zanzibar 
would be noro useS^ to then as an indc send ear country. 

Kansur also stated to ^.o that the Cuban Government v;as res- 
ponsible for : a lot of- trouble in the Congo ; Lcopoldviller That they 
had sent many black Cuban troops there disguised aG Congolese and 
that these black troops foucht in the Congo and had a base in 
Tanzania where they received their food and supplies and often came 
for rest, Ke i;e.it on to say that the Cuban Government was using these 
black troops in Africa to engender political influence on behalf 
of the Soviet Union and that most of these troops were Eassacred, 

• slaughtered because the imperialists discovered their presence. Ke 
claimed that the Cubans .and Russians were giving pro-Moscow African 
leaders v:eapons to fight against, the nationalists., ana that instead 
of fighting against the imperialist a that they v/ere fighting 

■ against the revolutionary nationalists in the Congo in order to 
prevent a nationalist revolution that, v;ould not have j£Qen under the 
influence and domination bf the Soviet Union* '■ 



I asked Kansur why he had turned against the Cubans since his 
last visit and he said it v/as because he found out that the Cubans 
were no good after working with then directly through the Eabassy 
of Cuba in Dar es Salaam. He claimed that Cuba had a black Cuban ■ 
there as ambassador that had to take orders from a white Cuban who 
■ was the first secretary and that this proved the Cubans to be racists 
who did not believe in equality of the black nan but were using 

. black puppets to further their own political intercstsj and those 
■ of the Soviet Union. I asked hint why ho had cone to Cuba and he said 
that the Party had brought bin there to work as an adviser on 

-African affairs and to set up. broadcasts to Africa ln'Ewahill over • 
Radio Havana. He started the broadcasts and often laughed about it 
af terv.'ards because no one in Radio Havana understood what he was 
broadcasting in Swahlli. I discovered him to be very reactionary 
and he laughed about the bad conditions he . created , in Radio Havana _ 
and how ho "had alienated and antagonized a 'lot of the workers there* 
He told ne that the director of Radio Havana asked him what could 
Cuba do to counteract the Chinese influence in Africa and that he 
should work for them in trying to do so. 

Kansur, while living in the Hotel Capri } created a lot of 
friction between '-himself and the Cuban workers. He struck a Cuban 
waiter with his fist in the Capri dining room because the 
waiter did not serve hlnj " fast enough " and then had the Party 
cake the victim apologize to him. 1 lie was extremely rude v;ith the 
workers. lie demanded that the director of the Hotel Capri secure a. 
prostitute for hits. When he' v/as informed that prostitution had been' 
abolished in Cuba by the Revolutionary Governments he told the 
director that that v:as a lie and that most any Cuban weuan on the 
street would sleep with him for rconcy. He then called officials of 
the Party and told them that he' wanted one of the chorus girls wor- 
king in the show at the Club In the Capri* The officials of the 
Party forced an unwilling show girl to submit to his demands for a 
prostitute in order to pacify him.

to come there before ai:cl" get cway %•;'; th such sha.v.eful con- 
duct and abuso and I asked him hov; could he get away v/ith„^ 
such action; Ke replied that ho had information on offifc I 
cials of the Cuban Government and the subversive activity 
that they were carrying on in Africa and that they cared 
not bother him. Ke ostentatiously went into the hotel bar 
and invited many people to drink with him and told then to • 
-drink all they wanted because it was free and being paid 
for.by the Cuban Govern/sent.. . .. '. 

While -.'ansur. was' using these, threats, to divulge, thi3 - 
. .so-called secret information, to mtimiaatc high olficiaxs 
of the Cuban party, 'he boasted that this information had 

• already been sold to Finnish television men who were then 
visiting Cuba and that in the future it was going to be 
published under a pseudonym* 

After ono week of observing J'ansur's reactionary con- 

• duct, I became apprehensive of his trustworthyness and 
called New York and discovered that neither the money nor 
the letter had arrived there. I went back to D.H. -Mansur 
to 'ask him about the "Chief of the Secret Police" who was 
supposed to have taken the money and communique to New York. 
He said that if the message and money had not arrived yet 
that may be the man did not go directly to Kev; York, and 
that maybe he went first to some other place, or maybe 

he stopped over in Mexico. I said well maybe that was 
, possible. I waited another week and called New York again 
. *' to find out that no such ".person had come to the Tenzanian 
'Mission to the United Nations, so I went back again to 
I). K. J/'ansur. He then said that he hed to personally go ■ 
to Tanzania himself to got the money because he* did. not - 
want anyone to think he was a thief. In the meantime 
' becoming more suspicious of Iviansur, I sent cables off to 
Minister "3abu" t with whom I was acquainted and to Pre- 
sident Myomere.- Minister "Babu" responded immediately 
replying that Mansur did not represent the Government of 
Tanzania and"- that he had no official position in the Govern- 
ment of Tanzania, 7/hen I went to J.'ancur and faced him 
again he broke- down and started crying, begging for me to 
please shoot him. He promised that he would get the tr.onoy 
beck ana that he would even get the Cuban Party to pay it 
back, Ke bogged mo not to involve his government and his 
president in this matter because the Government of Tanzania 
may kill his family or put' Jtltc/ii all in prison and kill .him

tho money £::d the* message t^ck, thfct-tiiis money v;cs supposed 
to go to our people in ICcw fork and that v/c had sunt a 
secret coded message and I wonted to know what he hod done 
with the communique; Ke then said that it was possible 
that he gave the coney and the communique to a Cuban offi- 
cial* I then said to him that in that case there would be 
no problem because if he gave it to a Cuban official that 
we would be able to get it bacl: because I thought they ■• . 
.would coonornte with me. Ke then stated that he.dj'd not ^ 
tnink we could get it back because tho* v Cuo&n official that 
he gave it to may have been working with the CIA. I kept 
insisting that I wanted the money oack and the message 
and he continued crying and then suggested that I go to- 
gether with hia to the British he uters news service and ' 
,tho Associated Press office in Havana and that he would 
'write a confession in the presence of the agents there 
-saying that ho had received the money from me end that 
the money had been, lost and that he would be responsible 
for making restitution. I asked him why did he went to 
go to the British and Americans who were our enemies and 
the eneirJ.es of his country, especially 'since his presided: • 
had denounced the- activity of the A. P. there in Tanzania 
as a subersive counterrevolutionary agency working -against : 
the government. Ke said that President Kyerere only de- 
nounced one correspondent of tho A. p. and that the reason 
he wanted to go there and get thea involved was because 
he was' working with the two news services and that this 
-■'would bo a form of collateral or assurance for the ..money. 
I then asked how could he be a loyal supporter of his 
' government and his president while working for the British 
•and American nowo agencies. •■ * ... 

'.'.' " His sinister aanoeuver was obvious. The fact was 
that the coded message, sent along with the money, was ■". .. 
signed by a code name and the person to receive it was [ ■ 
also designated by a code name. Legally there was no '.. ■ 
evidence to connect Afro-American freedom fighters with' 
Cuba or with'\me. It was obvious that Mansur and other 
agents had devised a conspiracy to create a' state of 
hysteria and journalistic sensationalism by attempting to .'■ 
link U.S. civil rights forces with foreign interests and' 
portray me as an intermediary of. foreign intrigue and sub- .. 
version. . ' ■' '..■■. • • 

Mansur .bed told ma th&t Cubcn Government officials

out the possibility that they would readily murder me and

that, though I may doubt that they were capable of this, 
—he could assure me that they were capable of this because 
he worked for and - had close contact with .them. Ee said 
that they were soliciting others, including himself, in 
their malicious campaign to discredit and silence me. * 
■Obviously he assumed after telling me all this that I 
was sufficiently against the Cuban Revolution to the ex- 
tent that he could afford to admit to me that he was 
working for the British and Americans. , - . 

..' When the African students studying in Havana, who 
•' were also friends of Ltensur, were informed that Mansur ' 
had stolen money entrusted to him for the Afro-American 
movement, they -confronted him as a delegation to investi- 
ng gate the varacity of the charges. Kansur confessed to 

then that he had had the money but not being aware of its 
•source of origin he became frightened at the amount and 
had turned it over to the Cuban authorities* " ■ 

An african woman freedom fighter, wife of a diplomat, ■ 
reported to uie that teznsur had approached her and some of 
her Cuban friends and tried to bribe them into taking him 
.to places where he claimed he had heard from foreign sources 
that Lesbian women frequented. She said he told them that 
he had plenty of money, ostentatiously flaunted Cuban bills 
in 50 peso denominations, and said he would pay them if 
they would take him where he could take pictures showing 
this type of life in Cuba. These women were shocked and 
became highly suspicious of his mission in Cuba, Mansur 
had told me that he had forced African freedom fighters 
from Angola out of Dar'es Salaam by publishing photo - 
--graphs he had taken of them in undesirable places enjoying 

. night life. It was more than obvious that he was seeking 
pictures of African freedom fighters that he could use to 
compromise and blackmail them on the continent. ■ 

\ ' ' ■ • - 

After I "began to- question Mansur more about the money 
and the coded message and discovered all of these. things 

. about him I found that iie had suddenly reoucsted permis- 
sion to leave the country even though he was supposed to 
remain there another month to set up. .the Swahi li broadcasts 
and to await thy arrival of two other Tanzaniaus to take 
over from him. Despite the fact that his cervices were 
supposedly indispensable to Kidio Havana, he was hurriedly 
sent on a trip to the interior of Cuba by party officials.,

he. had done about our message and money that were sent to 
our friends in the United States and disclosed to her the 
secrets that Hansur was openly telling about the Congo. . , 
She became horrified and after a long discussion on the 
matter, the Congolese revolutionary stated that they had 

. been trying to ascertain how the imperialist forces ob- 
tained information about their movement and the arrival of 
black Cuban soldiers in the Congo. She said that Mansur 
represented the musing link that they had been searching 
for, and that, it 'was now obvious to her that he was the 
man who had caused many revolutionaries to be massacred 
and their campaign to bo frustrated, I immediately called 
Command ante Vallejo again and asked for an urgent emergency 
conference. . , - - . ' 

Commandante Vallejo came to ny house and I told him 
that I had talked with the Congolese freedom fighter and 
that we were both convinced that ilansur was an agent of 
the imperialists and was the one responsible for the mas- 
sacre of Congcles"e and Cuban revolutionaries in the Congo 
by revealing secrets to the imperialists. I showed him 
the cable from Minister Babu of the T&nzanian Government. 
I discussed all of the afore mentioned facts, at length 
and asked him to report this directly to you, Fidel. I 
also asked Commandate Vallejo to prevent ttansur from leav- 
ing Cuba until he could be questioned more by me and the 
Cuban officials about the theft of the money, my missing 
communique and his direct connections with the A. P., Reuters, 
officials of the Cuban Communist Party and the circle of 
Finnish television men, whose woman informer claimed to be 
an intimate girl friend of yours, Fidel. Commandante Vallejo 
informed me that the matter would be investigated and that 
he would take it directly to Fidel. 

\ . 

He left' "hurriedly. The following night at 12:30 A.M. 
two men from G-2 came to my house. In a belligerent manner 
they demanded that I tell them what I had told Cc:nmandante 
Vallejo. I inouired as to what office they were from and 
th>;y said Commandate Penicro's office. I told them to tell 
Command ante Peniero that I did not deal with crooks and that 
anything I had to sr.y I would tell to Fidel. One of the 
mo.n stated that they did not have to stay there and listen '■/ 
to my insult and that I/.ansur was a "good revolutionary -friend

scaled that I had become convinced that Conn.nndaiite Peniero 
and Captain Ossany were working with subversive elements 
and sheilding agents' of the U.S. and British imperialists .' . 
I was unable to cake contact with Cori^andante Vallejo again* : 
He refused to see me and refused to relay my messages to 
, you, I was unable to see any responsible official in the 
Cuban Government and .D.H. Mansur was sped out of the Country 
by official representatives of the Cuban Government, I con- 
tinously sent telegrams, made telephony calls and requests 
to talk to you, Fidel. I also called President Dorticos' 
office and the office of Dra. Celia Sanchez seeking an' au- 
dience that I was never granted. I could only see the sane 
— people from Peniero's office who 'had' all along been instru- 
. mental in helping to sabotage my work in Cuba. I was only 
granted audiences with petty functionaries from peniero's 
• office who displayed an attitude of indifference and laughed 
' at the whole affair as if it were sons comedy, but this vjas 
a serious natter to our struggle .and it should have been a 
serious natter to Cuba, because I could not understand how 
- a government , or an offcial of a government like V tllej o^ 

Peniero or Osnany could see Cubsn soldiers, even if they were 
. black, wiped out, salughtered and massacred in the Con^o and 
here was > the nan who was responsible for it right there in 
Cuba and they refused to apprehend him or to even take him 
into custody and question Mm. ller<i was a nan whose preten-' 
tious nasquerade as a' representative of his government had • 
been' officially unmasked and they refused to do anything about 
it. Here was a nan who had stolen §1550 dollars from a 
struggle that Cuba clained to bo supporting and" they refused 
to bring this thief in, even for questioning, which meant 
that he, as well as other pirates, as well as Cuban pirates, 
had the right to practice piracy against our liberation 
struggle. He had impunity granted hin under the power and 

- authority of the Cuban Government. So the fact was that even 

- though this-, nan was a thief, it made no difference, he- was an 
honored guest who anong other things had stolen from the Afro- 
Anerican struggle which these -officials of Cuba were opposed to 
and to which they had been in opposition all along and had 

done everything they could to sabotage ■. One of the main char- , 
£tc tars in this sabotage v.'as Comnanttate Peniero. V/e expected 
more consideration fror.i Cor:^iand; j .nte Vailojo but wo found hin 
to be working hand in glove with Comraandate Peniero and T 

Captain fisicariy. \ 

I think it also i;/ioortaiit to note that much of the oeor'et 
organisational information that X- had filed with C^-vr^ndanto 
.'Peniero's office was later cynically cited to r*. by an official 
of one of the so-called free world embassies la Havana. It was 
also, positively obvious that through Cowniintiato Peniero and

I had h^d much more difficulty before then. I had been 
invited to Sweden on a speaking tour and I r.sd asked for 
permission to leave- Cuba but permission v.-ys never granted, - 
no cooperation was given me whatever. Finally, the people 
working with the Party had begun to do all manner of things 
to handicap and hinder our struggle snd their actions were 
beginning to become antagonistic whenever 1 had contact with 
them. During my last months in Cuba, hostility toward me oy 
members of the Party became very intense. They displayed . 
much resentment toward the fact -that I was receiving a sn&ll 
stipend in Pesos as the government's support of mc and my 
activities in behalf of the Afro -American struggle. Due to 
the fact that this stipend was used to make me appear a part 
of the new class of those enjoying the dulce vida in Cuba, 
while at the sarrie time piratical Party officials were robbing 
•us of the direct material support received from the revolu- 
tionary people of the United States and deliberately and .vi- 
ciously sabotaging all our efforts in our struggle, * refused 
to continue accepting this stipend from the Party* 

•Despite the fact that I had evidence that D,H. Mansur ' 
was a thief, a charlatan, an unprincipled counterrevolutionary. • 
and an admitted agent of the imperialist forces, and I had 
personally found him to be unscrupulous, anti-socialist, anti- 
Kyerere and an outright bandit of , the worse sort, functionaries 
of the Party and of Commandante Peniero's office insisted that 
he was an "honest man 1 ', a "revolutionary" and' a guest of the 
Cuban Government who just "tallied too much." From I'%nsur's 
point of view he felt safe and secure in the fact that he had 
connections with officials high in the Cuban Government. Ke 
suggested to me that if I wanted aid, any sepciel favor, or 
permission to leave Cuba that I had notter direct rny efforts 
more toward Captain Osmany Cienfuegos because his power was 
on the rise and Fidel's was on the decline and it would be- 
only a matter of time before Fidel would be completely power- 
less. 




I write you this correspondence now because of ;ny support 
of the Cuban people and the Cuban devolution. As desperately 



£•>• the 1550 collars^^e needed by innov or ishe|^i"fro -American 
freedom f-ighaers,- I >:r.ow that it. is nov: an irretrievable • ; 
loss s::d that those racist .officials of the Cuban Government-/ 
who so effectively sabotaged our struggle ware iilr-.d that we 
lost the money and they dee:ii it a greet victory for whatever 
cause they Serve. The only ones who could poaaibly profit 
from this are these who work for the- CIA and V,S. imperialism. 

I deem it my revolutionary duty to "bring these facts to r " 
your attention. I want to be sure that you krow this because 
I also see in thia a conspiracy against the Cuban Revolution 
and yourself and I am convinced that, if you are, and remain, 
' unaware of these corrupt and .sinister mach.l nations taking 
place around y-ju, you will soon be in the earae predicament as 
Kkrur.ah, Ben tfella or Sukarno and tho Cuban involution v/ill 
be subverted and destroyed from within, 

nw ' I think that you owe.it to the causu of the Cub^n i'tevolu- 
-• -tion and to revolutionaries throughout the world and especially. 
• to the revolutionaries in Latin America and the western hemi- 
sphere to let us know if these reactionary scoundrels of your 
, government were acting in accordance with your concept of re- 
. volutionary conduct as a part of your ruling clique or whether 
they were usurpers engaged in unscrupulous subversive acti- 
-. vities contrary to your beliefs and ideas. 

Again I say that I support the Cuban Revolution and I am 
grateful for the hospitality and friendship that the Cuban 
people have shown me. I hope that these demoralizing and 
agonizing experiences do not indicate a new fascist tendency 
on the part of the Cuban Revolution. The only complaint that 
I make to you is on behalf of my people, the Afro-American 
people who are engaged in a struggle for surviva'l, liberation, 
equality and freedom inside the USA. I make this complaint 
•to you because of the fact that your government has allowed 
saboteurs to sabotage our struggle and have set us back for 
a number of years and have allowed them to frustrate and de- 
moralize our. .people in our struggle against our oppressive 
enemy. I also" make this complaint as a revolutionary obli- 
gation to. the Cuban people themselves who have sacrificed 
their lives, their blood and their loved ones and gone to 
great lengths to promote the Cuban Revolution and to make 
it a living reality." I think that 1 owe it to them that I 
bring this matter to your attention so that you may deal per- 
sonally with it or place it into the hanas of the people so 
that. they may know about the characters and personalities of 
these persons who are supposed to be leaders of the Cuban ; ■ 
Revolution,, people like Commandant c Vallejo, Meniere and Osmariy.

Personally my stay in Cuba turned out quite well and 
my stay in Cubs as far as ny relationship v.'ith the Cuban 
people was quite enjoyable, but I deeply* resent the fact 
that a revolutionary government that came to power through 
revolution would sink to the level that it would fjive aid 
and comfort to imperialist agents, thieves ami pirates who 
practice piracy against freedom mo v emends, freedom fighters 
and those struggling for liberty and equality* 

There are many other things that I feel should be ' 
brought out , things I should say to you but 1 an not sure 
that~this correspondence will reach you, but if it is • 
' impossible to reach you this way, I feel that it is my 
revolutionary duty to reach you in whatever wanner I 
possibly can, even if it must be through the mass media of 
the world. - * 

I am doin<£ this completely on ray -own initiative. 1

"the United States. This is a personal matter that I am 
taking upon myself and I assume full responsibility-. I feel 
that this is my duty because I feel a personal obligation, 
a personal duty and a personal loyalty to the Cuban Revolu- •

years that I resided in Cuba, 

I hope at least this time you will feel thet what I 
have to say is important enough for a personal response and 
I hope you will not commit this very important and serious 
matter t:> the hands of the same racist, degenerate, counter- 
revolutionary events of U.S. imperialism who are responsible 
for frustrating and subverting that part of the Afro -American

COUNTERINTELLIGENCE OPERATIONS IN 
EFFECT AGAINST THE BPP 

Members of the BPP continue to be interviewed In 
the belief that this program has caused, and will continue 
to cause, concern and disruption among the members of the 
BPP. 

COUNTERINTELLIGENCE OPERATIONS UNDER CONSIDERATION 

The counterintelligence operations proposed in 
re communications are being held In abeyance pending Bureau 
decision. 

All arrests of members of the BPP continue to be 
followed, looking for violations of the anti-riot and gun 
control laws to determine If any of these individuals might 
be prosecuted under Federal and State law. 

Logical sporting goods stores and firearms outlets 
have been contacted and liaison is being maintained In an 
attempt to determine which members of the BPP are buying 
firearms.

ACCOMPLISHMENTS OBTAINED 

Sources have reported no overt reaction due to 
operations now in effect in the Los Angeles area. It should 
be noted, however, that a severe split has occurred between 
the leaders of the Los Angeles BPP and it is believed that 
the continuous interviewing of present and past BPP members 
has helped create this gulf. Attempts will be continued 
to widen this gulf.

Authority Is granted Newark to mall the cartoon 
submitted In referenced letter. The cartoon, which was 
drawn by the Newark Office, is satisfactory and needs no 
duplication. In reproducing this cartoon, Newark "should 
insure that the "paper and envelopes used do not contain 
any traceable markings. When mailing this cartoon, care 
should be taken so that the Bureau is not disclosed as the 
source and strict security is maintained. Newark should 
advise of any results received from this mailing.

§ « i 



NOTE : 

Newark has proposed the mailing of a cartoon ridiculing 
"nembers of the black racist organization known as US. The cartoon 
is of a pig and recognizable of BPP art. Newark wishes to 
anonymously mail copies of this cartoon to about 15 BPP members 
in the Newark area in an effort to build up resentment between 
the panthers and US. The cartoon Is designed to appear as If 
members of US had created same- It states that US represents 
the "people" instead of the BPP. Newark requested that the Bureau 
Laboratory reproduce this cartoon in a crude manner. We are 
-Instructing Newark to Utilize. its own cartoon as it meets the 
■=»eds and reproduction by the Laboratory is unnecessary in this 
tance. ,- ,;

The Adult Authority version contradicts the Superior Coyrt order itself: 



his contemporaries. Not only was there absence of cause for the cancella- 
tion of parole, it was the product of a type of pressure unbecoming, to say 
the least, to the law enforcement paraphernalia of this state." 

Cleaver is in polities! exile. because a man of his convictions cannot 
get justice here. Indeed, if we are to give more than lip service to the con- 
cepts of freedom and justice we must support him. The work to get him • 
discharged from patolc must continue. An intense publicity campaign is 
necessary now to bring to the public the legal defense and arguments 
which were carried to the courts with no satisfaction. We must all work 
together to focus attention cf this case. This is not an issue of one man's 
freedom, but a broad shugRh; which affirms the right of all of us to speak

Re WFO alrtel 9/19/69. 

At a meeting of the Washington Mobilization 
Committee toEndthe War in Vietnam, held the evening of 
9/22/69; ^^Ql^ advised it was announced t hat the 
Steering Committee of the NMC had contacted tfgSSElHBP* 
BUF member and civil rights activist and asked him to speak 
at the rally planned for WDC on 11/15/69. 

According to^iWllpjfcPexpressed his willingness 
to speak, but stated he°wf£aware of the demands made by 
the BUF on the NMC and would not speak, allow his name to j 
be used, or sit on the platform if any collection was taken 
up at the rally. The Steering Committee voted to accept j . 
^CtfBHflt terms and have also secured the appearance of Mrs.— ' 
CORETTA'KING at the rally. The NMC now believes that the, 
BUF will be most reluctant to cause any trouble. 

The Steering Committee wi ll advl s i^U**WW' |liJlJjL ^ 
A, by letter, with copy sent tooQgQk stating no collec- 
tion will be taken up, but stating a rock and roll concert 
will be held and the BUF will be given a part of the profit

from the concert. 



WFO is of the opinion that a carefully prepared 
and properly worded nevs release passed on to reporters 
or columnists known to be frlendlytothe Bureau could 
result in acute embarrassment to fl^BB^ and cause Internal 
dissention within the ranks of the BUF. 



In this connection the article could be worded 
as coming from a leader of the black community, holding a 
high office in the BUF who leaked the story to the news 
media and who accuses 4@^£ of revealing his true colors 
as an "Uncle Tom" who has sold out the Interests of the 
black community to white intellectuals and white radicals 
and thus exposed his friends to a violent confrontation with 
the police, should disorders such as took place after Resur- 
rection City happen during the course of the peace march. 

The article should be so written that the "BUF 
Official" expresses his dismay that tf^j^^ would place his 
political future andoersonal gain before his black brothers, 
and allude that mjpip may not be the best possible candidate 
for the D. C. School Board. 



If the Bureau is of the opinion that such a counter- 
intelligence project, calculated to tarnish the image of 
$gg£&Si^3SSf and create internal dissention within the 
ranks of the BUF is desirable, WFO is prepared to forward 
such a release, or if the Bureau so desires, the release can 
be prepared at the Seat of Government. 

No counterintelligence action will be initiated 
without prior Bureau approval.

section of this report, and was headed state-wide by Mr; Hugh

"Mr. Garry has, like his comrades in" tho legal

Obviously, all of these petitions sought to mold the court's 
opinions in consonance with tho Communist Party lino, and 
while some of the other Communist lawyers sent an occasional 
petition, Mr. Garry's have boen especially numerous .and 
vehement . Ho has jtaught in the Communist school in San

on a nationwido basis which attracted a great many racial

an extremely rich and potent organization. While it was being 
suspended from operating in California because of its subver-

operation, its entire file was stolen from tho office of the *

ReBuairtel 9/18/69. 

For the information of offices other than New York 
and Newark, reairtel discussed a New York communication con- 
cerning a re ported official stat ement by BOBBY GEORGE SEALE 
on plans of C^lSaKSBBNe^^P, a former BPP official at 
Newark, to initiate a new and separate "Black Nationalist 
Party". The Bureau pointed out that the issuance of the 
. SEALE stateisent represents an excellent opportunity to divide 
the BPP. 

It is noted that the S/4/ 69 issu e of "The Black 
Panther" reported the expulsion of £gH^b and labeled him an 
"agent provacateur and degenerate". Information available to 
San Francisco indicates that nationally, the BPP is in a

Condition of disruption and the only effective chapters still 
operating outside the San Francisco area are in Chicago* 
Boston, Kansas City, New York, Los Angeles and Seattle. 

BPP National Headquarters in Berkeley, Calif., are 
in frequent telephonic contact with leaders and Officers of 
the Day for these chapters. An expulsion letter directed to 
these individuals would have no effect inasmuch as they 
could immediately ascertain the communication was not legitir 
mate. For the same reason, it would not appear that any 
attempt should be made to direct letters to individuals in 
this area who are in immediate contact with the National 
office. However, there is a possibility that expulsion 
letters directed to BPP members who are not in close contact 
with the National office, accusing them of Black Nationalism, 
may produce some disruption and defection among the existing 
.membership. San Francisco contemplates the preparation of 
an expulsion letter for mailing to such BPP members. The 
letter would be prepared over the signature of DAVID HILLIARD, 
Chief of Staff, and mailed from Berkeley, Calif. 

Chicago, Seattle, Boston, Kansas City, New York and 
Los Angeles, are requested to furnish San Francisco a list 
*.of those members of BPP still known to be active in their 
; respective area along with their mailing addresses. This list 
should not include prominent members of the chapter who are 
in close^contact with the National office. 

On receipt of replies to this communication, San 
Francisco will furnish Bureau a copy of expulsion letter and 
request that copies of the letter be prepared at the Laboratory 
over the signature of DAVID HILLIARD for mailing from Berkeley, 
Calif.

BLACK "PANTHER ~PARTY' (BPP) 

ReBulet to San Francisco 9/12/69. 

. Since receipt of Bureau letter 7/11/69, the follow- 
ing counterintelligence action has been taken by this office 
in attempt to disrupt the BPP. Prior to the convening of the 
BPP sponsored United Front Against Fascism (UFAF) in Oakland 
7/18-20/69, the Alameda taxpayers associates protested the 
use of the Merritt Junior College auditorium by the BPP, and, 
as a result, the organization was forced to spend $1,000 for 
.rental of the Oakland City Auditorium. A copy of the BPP 
Coloring Book along with the July 5, 1969 issue of "The Black '&ty 
Panther" were anonymously mailed to seven addressees who were

and coroner records have been checked and this office is -— 
presently attempting to ascertain a way of informing the 
Victim's mother, without further grievance to her, of the lo- 
cation of BPP bank accounts. 

This office has kept in mind the possibility of 
using a new black extremist group in an attempt to cause 
further defection from the BPP. To this end, the following 
former BPP members in the San Francisco area have been inter- 
viewed since 7/11/69:' 




Almost without exception, the aforementioned 
individuals have left the BPP because of personality con- 
flicts with BOBBY SEALE rather than their objections to 
the ideology of the Panthers. No information has been 
received to date of any new black extremist group attempting 
to recruit ex-BPP members in this area. To date, no specific 
proposals have been made concerning the Bureau aiding in the 
formation of a new organization made up of these ex-BPP 
members because their general background would indicate that 
they would not be conducive to being properly supervised in 
such an undertaking.

Re Sari^ Francisco airtel dated 9/8/69. - 

By airtel dated 9/15/69, San Francisco requested 
Bureau authority to anonymously advise landlord of GAIL 
SPILLARD, who is active in the BPP National Distribution 
Office, that she was renting an apartment from him under an 
/^assumed name. Permission was also requested to forward the 
^landlord anonymously a copy of an article in "The Black 
Panther" signed by SPILLARD. 

This office has continued efforts to determine 
the best means of advising executor or administrator of 
ERNEST JORNER concerning BPP bank accounts. JORNER war 
young Negro male who was killed in a truck driven by 

m* The truck is used by the BPP Distribution 
Office. Review of records of Office of Coroner indicated that 
an inquest was Jjeldin this matter on 9/11/69, and despite 
the fact thatj^&^S^did not appear, the Coroner's Jury 
found, "We find no evidence of criminal responsibility on part ^ 
of the driver". ^ ^ $£'& /(ft ' ¥</ f i' $ (? ' 5/6 

The mother of JORNER was at the inquest but she

BUF "TAX" ON ANTIWAR RALLY REJECTED 



The Black United Front (BUF) has demanded a "tax" 
of a dollar per demonstrator be paid by the New Mobilization 
Committee to End the War in Vietnam (NMC) in order to hold 
an antiwar demonstration November 15, 1969, in Washington, 
D. C. Nl-iC officials have rejected the demand. 

chairman of the BUF, 
presented the demand to NMC with an a lterna tive payment of 
$25,000 and three printing presses. ^gHf told NMC officials 
that the demonstrators would think they were in Vietnam 
themselves, as a resul t of a ction by Washington,* D. C, 
"youths" recruited tyJ^BQkif the demand was not met. The 
"tax" was levied becauseUffflfr feels any trouble in connection 
with the demonstration would reverberate on the black 
community. 



«4^pfe was seconded by 3@PQ of the BUF who 
asked NMC leaders whether they wanted the demonstrators to 
be met "on the highway o r in the city?" Fearing for the 
safety of de monstrators JQBQBHHSBBt, Dave Dellinger and 
jSSBaBBfc of the NMC offered $10,000 to BUF even though 
the NMC is several thousand dollars in debt. The BUF would 
not negotiate the price. 

The NMC and its Washing ton, D. C. , chairman, 
Abe Bloom, now have decided that ttE^SS^^Sff^^ 811 ^ 2 0t the 
support of the whole BUF and the NMC will not pay the "head 
tax" as a matter of principle. The "matter of principle" is 
in spite of NKC's previous offer to negotiate the price.

Re Bureau letter to San Francisco, 9/12/69. •4b 

The building housing the Des Moines Chapter of ' f 

the BPP in June, 1969, was declared a health hazard by the i 

Des Moines City Health Department and was thereafter abandoned. > 
Telephone service to the Des Moines chapter wasterminated^ , 
at the end of June, 1969. During July, 1969 , wBHmUB^D <" 
of the Kansas City BPP was in contact with the National 
Office ft f ^ Ifr T» JlP iPm Jig attempt to reopen theDesMoines BPP 
Office. (Eg BV was recommended brfl ^o assume , j 

leadership role in this organization. gB Pn August, 1969, j 
advised he had reopened the Des Moines BpV Office, however, ' 

informant considers current status of Des Moines BPP to be 
a "single man operation." 

JUNE HILLIARD, Assistant Chief of Staff, National 
BPP Headquarters, in August, 1969, announced thatihe Omaha 
hapter had been disbanded and its leader ,Qg ^t 
"^ expelled from the BPP, however, he announced that 
might reestablish a Omaha Chapter at a future date. 

In late August, 1969, an organization known as 
United Front Against Fascism (UFAF) was formed in Omaha 
and this organization has been described as a replacement 
for the BPP. The activities of this group are being closely 
followed. 

During the summer months of 1969, the BPP Chapters 
in Des Moines and Omaha were completely inactive and as a 
result of this inactivity and the status of the two chapters 
as indicated above, no positive steps could be taken to exploit 
the weaknesses of the BPP. Tjrn nr

At present it appears that the UFAF is simply ' ; ' 
another name for the BPP and it is not know at the present 
time if membership in this group is restricted to Negroes. 
It is felt that the UFAF is not one of those groups being 
formed which will recruit its membership from ex-BPP 
members . 

It is anticipated that concrete proposals regarding 
counterintelligence activities against this new organization 
will be submitted in the future to the Bureau for consideration 
and approval.

ReBalet 9/3/69 and Bulet 9/18/69. 

San Francisco has received no. information to date 
indicating the possibility that HUEY P.^NEWTON is going to be 
expelled from the BPP or that ELDRIDGE\CLEAVER is disenchanted 
with BPP leadership and will join a grdup of ousted members of 
the BPP to start a new organization. 

On the contrary* each weekly issue of "The Black 
Panther" features both NEWTON and CLEAVER. It does not appear 
logical that either NEWTON, the head of the BPP, or CLEAVER 
would be expelled by an anonymous letter. CLEAVER, in recent 
conversations with BPP Headquarters, has been very cordial and 
ELBERT\HOWARD, Editor of "The Black Panther" was recently in 
the oriVnt and planning on visiting CLEAVER before his return 
to the United States. 

It is believed that anonymous letters directed to 
either HUEY P. NEWTON and ELDRIDGE CLEAVER would have no 
effect while the BPP paper continues to eulogize them each 
week.

RACIAL INTELLIGENCE

Re Bureau letter to San Francisco, 7/11/69, captioned 
i-vr . as above; Bureau airtel to Albany, 9/4/69, captioned "Black 
Extremist Group Recruiting Ex-Black Panther Party Members, 
Racial Matters", and Bureau letter to San Francisco, 9/12/69, 
captioned as above. 

The situation of the Kansas City, Mo. Chapter of the 
BPP does not leqd itself to specific counterintelligence action. 
Kansas City, Mo. BPP is a small group, consisting of approximately - 
17 members, and has received little support from the black 
community. Recent emphasis upon attempting to gain support ', 
through the founding of the Bobby Hutton Free Community Health 
Clinic has resulted in utter frustration. The black community 
has not utilized the facility and has taken scant notice of 
its existence. The present drive to re-establish the Children's 
: Breakfast Program has met with indifference by the black community. 

V , The rec ent disclosure through the public news media 
by ^^g| j^ ^||^BE ^ a»I^S f^ ^^ hat ne i s a Maoist and Marxist 
* conmuni^Cj^^resuTted In many mode rat e black and white 

sympathizers turning their backs on the group. This disclosure 
was widespread and no action-jde.emed appropriate by this office. 

*™ RLC- 96 \ , 

The obvious weaknesses of *xhe Kansas City BPP group 
have been exploited through frequent personal contacts with 
black citizens and potential Black Panther members in the 
normal course of business. When agents are interviewing 
citizens in the black community, interviewees usually ask 
questions concerning the Black Panthers. Agents have referred 
these persons to the published article concerning the Black 
Panthers' communist beliefs and practices. This has 
in no embarrassment to the Bureau as the statement by<| 
was widely publicized and available to the community.

Another tactic utilized by the Kansas City 
Division is through agents assigned to Black Panther matters 
familiarizing themselves with the "Mao Red Book";and during 
interviews with suspected and potential members, agents use 
quotes from this book to show the discrepancies in teachings 
by the Black Panther leaders. This has tended to degrade 
Kansas City, Mo. BPP leaders somewhat and may be a partial 
cause of lost membership in the Kansas City Chapter. 

All agents are aware of the necessity for 
exploiting the weaknesses of the Kansas City, Mo. BPP, 
and that potential for action in this matter will be 
aggressively pursued.

ReBulet to SF 9/12/69, and Bulet to SF 7/11/69. 

Exploiting the weaknesses of the Black Panther Party 
(BPP) in the Indianapolis Division has been done in several ways 
since receipt of referenced Bureau letter 7/11/69. . Some of the 
weaknesses exploited include: (1) financial, 00 suspicion of one 
member for another, and (3) exposing BPP programs . 

The first weakness of the BPP was that of financial, 
which was dealt with in several ways. The BPP in Indianapolis has 
always had financial problems, and has been continually low or 
overdrawn in their bank account which has been monitored by the / 
Indianapolis Office. Since it was determined the BPP did have 
financial problems, it was learned the BPP owed the Indiana Bell '- 
Telephone Company for several months of telephone service, and 
Indiana Bell was encouraged to remove the service from BPP Head- 
quarters. The service was in fact cut off at BPP Headquarters on 
or about 9/15/69. 

In addition, the BPP has been receiving their office 
space rent free, but are now faced with relocating as the owner 
of the building is selling the property. The owner, who is selling 
has been encouraged to move the BPP out as soon as possible and 
without funds, the BPP has been unable to locate another site for 
their headquarters, and will be put out of their present head- 
quarters any day.

Other weaknesses that have been capitalized on include 
interviews of members wherein jealousy among the members lias k , 
been stimulated and at the sane time has caused a number of per- 
sons to fall under suspicion and be purged from the Party. Alon g

holding a press 

9/2 V G 9 and renouncing the BPP and resigning as 

tin Indianapolis. His leaving the BPP has taken 

number of members with him who had been considering leaving, but 
were staying because he was staying. As a result of his leaving 
the BPP is faced with losing their leader and a number of members, 
ha vim: to locate u now hoadnuarters and obtain funds by some means. 



The BPP in Indianapolis also attempted to start a 
Breakfast for School Children Program and anonymous mailings were 
made to ministers of churches in the area of the BPP Headquarters, 
and they were not allowed to establish a program in that area. 
They did go to the other side of town and in conjunction with 
several other organizations, set up a breakfast program; however, 
the individual with whom they obtained the facilities was contacted 
by the Indianapolis Office, and he in turn, did not let the BPP 
put up any photos or posters and did not let the BPP talk to the 
children about the BPP program or teach hate. As a result the U-IT 
soon dropped out of the program and left it -vitb the other organi- 
sations to o;orr-.te. 

The BPP in Indianapolis is now in n precarious position 
in a struggle for existence and their new Chairman is a former 
BPP member who was purged andnowhas been asked to come back by 
the remaining few members. ^ggBHRV' tne former Chairman, advises 
that the BPP National Headquarters will most likely not approve 
their choice as Chairman, and someone will be sent from National 
Headquarters to run t h e Chapter. If National Headquarters does not 
send someone ,fflSgSSHfcrad vises the Chapter is likely to fold in.

ReBUlets to San Francisco, July 11 and 
September 12, 1969. 

BPP activities in the Seattle Division have been 
almost non-existent during the summer months of 1969. The 
Seattle BPP Chapter is currently involved in a power 
struggle amid the leadership and, in addition, has given 
indications of^ promoting future programs along political 
lines rather than continuing the more violent confrontation-type 
tactics. At this time, the Seattle BPP Chapter attracts very 
few members to regular meetings and is having considerable 
difficulty financing even the most modest political programs. 
In addition, the Negro population of Seattle has rejectee? . , , Jt 
BPP programs hut has supported the more legitimate demands 
of other non-militant Negro a roups . 

Since reBUlet of July 11, 1969, Seattle BPP members, 
through their own mis-calculation?; and ineotness have almost 
removed this group as a problem in the State of VTashington. 

At this ti-ite it would not appear logical to 
promote the formation of any nroup composed of ex-BPP 
me -iberr, in the , c tate of Washington. The Teattle nivi^ion 
will continue to follow this situation closely and 
v.-ill i:-:i.ieei.7toly advise the r,uro;ju of any COINTEL potential 
arising from tiiis situation.

"BLACK UNITED FRONT (BUF), RM". ' 

.In view of the remarks of thd __ _ 

kt the BUF meeting held Wednesday evening," 9/17/69, at 
the Douglas Memorial Methodist Church, wherein he admitted 
that the current campaign being waged by the BUF in demanding 
reparations was political in nature, in order to show that 
religious institutions were racist in nature and that the 
BUF would make exorbitant demands which the churches could 
'not possibly meet in order to prove this point, WFO is of 
the opinion that the Bureau can profit.from these statements 
by showing the true nature and character of the BUF. 

WFO is of the opinion that a carefully prepared and 
properly worded news release passed out to reporters or 
columnists known to be frie ndly to t he Bu reau could result in 
acute embarrassment to both<B^5SS«aBS^8fr and the BUF.

A female BPP member who is active in the production 
of the notorious BPP newspaper, recently moved to an apart- 
ment under an alias. San Francisco has requested permission 
to send copies of an article which appeared in the BPP news- 
paper to her new landlord. This article also contains a 
photograph of her. We are interested in disrupting the 
production and distillation of the BPP newspaper. It is believed 
that any disruption of its staff will assist us in dis- 
rupting the newspaper. We are authorizing this anonymous 
mailing. The note which will accompany the article identifies 
the BPP member as the new tenant. There is no chance_that 
this mailing will be traced to the Bureau.

COUNTERINTELLIGENCE PROGRAM 
BLACK NATIONALIST - HATE GROUPS 
RACIAL INTELLIGENCE 
BLACK PANTHER PARTY (BPP) 



Attached is a letter authorizing the New York 
Office to mail an anonymous communication, purportedly from 
the father of a black extremist, to a leader of a Jewish 
group called the "Jewish Defense League" (JEDEL) . This 
communication seeks to establish a relationship between the 
sender and JEDEL for the purpose of furnishing JEDEL with 
instances in anti-Semitism by the Black Panther Party (BPP) 
and other extremist groups. 

JEDEL is. a Jewish vigilante-type organization 
formed and operated in New York City. Its aims and purposes 
are to protect Jewish people from all sorts of anti-Semitism. /> 
At this time its aims and purposes are not of an illegal \i 
nature and apparently not political. The Black Panther Party,!' 
as well as other extremist groups are anti-Semitic in nature. L f 
• Many instances of anti-Semitism by the BPP have been noted. : 

[This information, when placed in the hands of JEDEL, could , 
easily operate against the best interest of the 3PP with v 
resultant disruption. 

JEDEL is apparently financially well-off and has 
access to newspaper coverage. It is our intent to create a 
fictitious source of information who will furnish public 
source data to Rabbi Meir Kahane, a director of JEDEL. It 
is expected that the information will ultimately be published 
and cause embarrassment to the BPP and other extremist groups. 

New York has proposed the mailing of an anonymous 
letter from a pro-Jewish Negro father of a BPP member. The letter 
is addressed to Rabbi Kahane and professes sympathy and friendship 
for the Jews and criticism of the BPP. It leaves the way open for 
additional communications. .-, //?/'■ . t//00- ./"i/t

Re Bureau letter to San Francisco 9-12-69. 

On 8-21-69 and 8-31-69, Joint rallies were held 
in Boston by the Black Panther Party (BPP) and the Students 
for a Democratic Society (SDS), with the SDS, according to 
leaflets, being the organizing group. The themes of the 
rallies, however, was in defense of the BPP and denounced 
arrests of BPP Tn embers throughout the U. S. Both SDS and 
BPP speakers appeared at each rally. Mutual support and 
cooperation between the two groups appeared to exist and 
according to informants, is continuing. 

Fines and money for bond has without question 
placed the Boston BPP In serious financial trouble. Since 
: August, 1969, Boston Panther members have been involved in 
five separate arrests by FBI (New Haven) and Boston Police

RACIAL INTELLIGENCE 
BLACK PANTHER PARTY (BPP) 



This is to advise of the success of a recent anony- 
mous mailing made in Detroit, Michigan, and aimed toward causing 
disruption amongst the leadership of the Black Panther Party (BPP) . 

In an effort to neutralize the activities of the 
notorious BPP, an ever increasing counterintelligence effort 
has been waged. In line with this program and, by letter dated 
9/15/69, the Detroit Office was authorized to mail an anonymous 
letter to selected Detroit BPP leaders and members. The letter 
was signed "A Concerned Sister" and raised the proposition that 
the death of BPP member Michael Baynahm was not by suicide but 
in reality a murder arranged for by national BPP headquarters. 
Baynahm was found dead several weeks ago. Police investigation fj 
resulted in a determination that he had committed suicide. / 
BPP in Detroit has been concerned over his death and nervous /'•;• 
: in view of recent Panther murders throughout the country. In ' / 
view of this and in order to disrupt this group, authority was ' 
given Detroit to mail this communication so that suspicion 
might be thrown on a female member. 

Detroit has advised that this letter is causing consi- 
derable consternation, both in Detroit and with national BPP 
leaders. Two women are suspected and national headquarters 
ordered members to stay away from one of these persons inasmuch 
as she was "probably a police informant." We will continue to 
wage effective counterintelligence operations against this 
organization.

/' ). 

No positive counterintelligence measure has been 
devised by this office since receipt of Bulet dated 7/11/69. 

Informants have provided no information to indicate 
that the BPP members in this division have been made aware 
of the organization's liaison with white groups or the efforts 
of some ex-BPP members to form a new party. Consequently, 
no logical counterintelligence measure which could exploit 
these weaknesses has been devised. 

Informants advise that the two BPP chapters in this 
division, Sacramento and Vallejo, have sunk to such a low 
level of membership and activity that they are concerned with 
this matter and their own problem of survival. This matter 
has been and will continue to be followed closely and logical 
counterintdligence proposals which can exploit local BPP 
weaknesses will be presented for the Bureau's approval. 

This division has ex-BPP members, many of whom were 
leaders, who could be used as scape goats in a counterintelligence 
measure based on allegations of an attempt to organize a new 
party. However, until reports of such a party are received from 
some source other than an anonymous mailing, it is not believed 
it will be credible.

ReBulet to San Francisco 9/12/69. 

Since Bureau letter to San Francisco dated 7/11/69, 
counterintelligence activity by Newark has consisted of 
anonymous mailings and Interviews of BPP members. 

Newark believes that interviews, particularly those 
of rank and file. members, have been very effective and 
contributed to the decline in BPP activity. 

Counterintelligence targets have dwindled in the 
Newark Division as the BPP has declined to one small chapter 
in Jersey City, N.J. The average attendance at meetings of 
this chapter currently averages 7 to 9 members. 

There is no Indication that this one remaining chapter 
in New Jersey is seeking any working alliance with any white 
organizations. 

In regard to the possible formation of any new 
organization comprised of former BPP members, Newark would 
propose a continuation of counterintelligence activity similar 
to that used with apparent success against the BPP, namely 
anonymous mailings and an aggressive interview program. ,'

The comments of the Portland Office as set forth

Portland should review pertinent files and submit a specific

of "Guardian'* articles. If successful, consideration will be 
given for utilizing this type of proposal in other offices. 



TE: Vi 



NOTE 

Portland has suggested that reprints of articles 
appearing in the "Guardian" be anonymously mailed to both 
members of the BPP and members of the Students for a Democratic 
Society (SDS). These articles point out recent splits between 
the SDS and the BPP at a leadership level. Portland believes 
that these articles would spread the news of these splits to 
rank-and-file members of these groups. We are calling for a 
specific proposal as to mailing in the Portland area.

Re Portland letter to Director, 9/2/69. 

Background 

The "Guardian" dated 8/16/69, carried an article 
captioned "Panther Leaders Blast SDS." According to article 
Black Panther Party (BPP) chairman BOBBY SEALE and Chief 
of Staff DAVIBJULLIARD have characterized SDS as fascist 
organization. 

It is noted that some SDS members in Oregon have 
subscribed to the BPP official publication, "The Black 
Panther/* and have made financial contributions to the BPP. 

Suggestion 

It is suggested that reprints of the "Guardian" 
article be obtained to be mailed anonymously to SDS members 
many of whom are probably unaware of current dispute between 
SDS and BPP on leadership level over SDS refusal to endorse 
all aspects of a nation-wide petition campaign for community 
control of local police departments. It is proposed that 
each reprint carry an additional message such as "Don't 
support Black Panthers by financial contributions and don't 
support their anti-white publication "The Black Panther." 
If you now receive "The Black Panther" you are urged to 
cancel your subscription." 

Effect 

tVf* Mailing of the article would let SDS members in 
all states of the country know that BPP leadership has 
described SDS as fascists and would serve to inform SDS """; 
members that there is a split between SDS and BPP at 
leadership level 




Such a mailing could have an affect <

By letter dated 9/18/69, Newark submitted a

ReBulets to San Francisco, 7/11/69 and 9/12/69. 

Since referenced letter dated 7/II/69, the NYO has 
taken the following steps to exploit the weakness of the BPP: 

In the later part of August, 1969, an official of the 
Roman Catholic Church in New York City was advised of the BPP 
sponsorship of a. "Breakfast for Children Program" held in a 
Roman Catholic Church in the Harlem, New York City area. 






program was promptly discontinued on 8/29/69, 

who has furnished reliable information 



This 
according to 
in the past. 

Since July, 1969, a confidential source of the NYO 
has been attempting to determine if any members of the BPP 
have been or are at present receiving welfare benefits from 
the City or State of New York. Such information could be used 
to show the dependence of individual BPP members on the 
"facilities of the establishment" and, therefore, be exploited 
in a Counterintelligence measure directed towards a weakness 
within the BPP as a group. 

During July and August, 1969* various leaflets 
authorized under the COINTELPRO - New Left (Bufile 100-^9698) 
(NYfile 100-163303) were directed at selected BPP members and 
other Black Militants within the New York City area. 

The leaflets graphically depict white members of 
Students for a Democratic Society and the Third World Revolution 
among others, in a position exploiting the Black Man and his 
organizations . ^» $.

In regards to the Bureau's request that specific . 
proposals concerning the formation of a "new organization made 
up of ex-BPP members" be submitted for consideration and approval, 
the following is submitted: 

It has been the experience of the NYO through the 
continuing investigation of the BPP that the average length 
of time of membership of any one individual in the BPP has 
been relatively short. Therefore, the NYO has acquired back- 
ground data and other information on at least 50 individuals 
who are former members of the BPP even though they were 
members for a limited period. 

It is suggested that some of the above individuals 
be sent a letter from the "Ad Hoc Committee of Back to Black". 
This committee would claim that due to the BPP's preoccupation 
with the teachings of MAO TSE TUNG, CHE GUEVRA, and HERBERT 
MARCUSE, a Chinaman, and two whitemen, as well as a new found 
interest in fighting Fascism with the help of white students, 
that it, the BPP, no longer represents the aspirations and 
desires of Black people but has been taken over by the white 
man of his own interests. 

The letterhead of the "Ad Hoc Committee" would 
include the names of present and ex-members of the BPP from 
the various BPP chapters around the country and would utilize 
as an address a Post Office Box at an appropriately located 
city within the United States. 

It is felt that the above proposal would have some 
disruptive effect on the BPP in its activities in the New 
York City area even if limited to causing a denial of authenticity 
of the "Ad Hoc Committee of Back to Black" by current or 
ex-BPP members.

At this time — and this is in ike fall of i<}65 and ike. spring of i^66 — 
an organisation called ike Tempo nary Alliance, of Local Organizations (TALD) was 
fonmed by ike militant and moderate civil nights groups to face dome of ike

upon failure of the Social Action (enter, the Slack (ongress wad formed. 

KaAcnga and Waiter Bremond were the chief organisers of ike Black (ongress . 
with KaAcnna playing a behind-the-scenes note and pushing Bn&rond to the forefront. 
The Black (ongness advocated ike principle of operational unity. Operational 
unity wad a concept whereby the militant and moderate organizations were supposed 
to arbitrate tkei/i differences and form a united front in ike black comnunily. 
The roster of ike organization did involve groups from all poinid on ike spectrum; 
however, at times of cridid on confrontation ike croup usually assumed a militant

At this point media took a particular interest in the Black QjnQA&e* and

Congress, However, . it was widely known, that Hon KaAenga was Acally the contAolling 
factor. 

In the fall of last yean, which would be 1^68, the Black Panther Tarty 
withdrew from the Black Congress. The reason given was that the Black Q>ngA&&6 
was showing, favoritism io Hon KaAenga and io US and that resources made available 
to the Congress were distributed according to the two-man dictate of Walter 
Brcmond and Hon KaAenga, It is at this point of resignation that the original 
fnlction between the Black f anther forty and US organisation becane a maiden, of 
jfablic discussion. It la at this time alio that community observers predicted an.

time was a professor at QU State, L.A., who had been instrumental in establish- 
ing the Black Studies Program at Qal State, in developing, ike whole concept of 
black student union* in Southern Qalifornia and who was ihe heed of. ihe. Black. ~ 
.Student Alliance. At ike point of. the Black Student Alliance, resigning from 
the. black (ongress, Truly publicly denounced Karenga and began a strong. * 
association with fcldridge [leaven and ihe Black Panther Party in Oakland. Truly 
Subsequently resigned from Qal State Los Angeles as a professor and went to teach 
at Qlarement [allege in nearby Pomona.' It i* strongly rumored that Karenga f s 
organijation had threatened 7 Aula's life and that he left the. din. apparently 
fan his own safety* $u*i a feu weeks ago before giving final exaninatlon* at 
Qlaremont [allege — which was incidentally around the time of ihe slayings at 
U[LA — Truly walked off the canpu* of [larement [ollcge and hi* whereabouts one 
alleged to be unknown. 

A first exanple of the effect* of ihe split i* a situation 1 was duiectly 
\involved in, Following the incident at Valley State [ollege, 1 organised a 
^community meeting to allow the students of Valley State [ollege, which La in the 
San FcAnando Valley and fan removed front [enlAal [ity ^- 0l6 Angeles, to inform the 
community of ihe situation and problem* at Valley State, I financed this rally 
and made, alt ihe arrangements. However, I hod an agreement with the. Black 
Student* Union of Valley State (allege that J would not interfere with the program 
; content of their rally, nor the personalities to be involved. 

The. rally was held at ike Pasla Auditorium. It was held ike Friday after 
Thanksgiving, I utilised ihe, resource* of ihe Los Angeles Sentinel newspaper 
and Radio Station K§F^ to develop an audience for this affair. Very early in ike 
evening of ihe rally I realised that a situation of confrontation was evident. 
Black Panthers were there in large number* selling Black Panther, newspaper,! and 
distributing, literature of ike Black Panther organisation. It was quite obvious 
to me that there was a congenial relationship between ike student* of the college* 
and universities and the Black Panther Party. All of ike speakers on ike program 
were pro-Pantker in their orientation* wiik one exception. That exception was 
Ayuko Baku, also mentioned/ earlier in this report as a co~ founder wiik Karenga 
of the Afro-A,nerican Association and who recently was expelled from [uba, Babu f s 
position was a position of neutrality whereby he wa* apocaling for unity among 
all the. broihers in ihe movement. There was a lot of inisunderstanding on ike

. men, Al rrcntice "Bunchy" Qarter, one of ike Alain Panthers, called a conference. 
of about eight of. ike top lieutenants of ike Panther Party, including, jfohn. '-.. 
fiuagins, ike other Alain. Panther, and Shermont Bank*, Southern Qalifornia head 
of the. Pantker Party. Following ikLi conference, Black Panther members were dis~ 
patched QAound member of US organisation. Several people at this point began ia 
/cave ike. rank. However, no incident occurred. 

The. next knowledge of anything involving the Panthers and US that ia known 
La the Wednesday before the shooting at UQLA, at which time it was noted t/iat 
Karenga was booed off the campus of UQLA and told by the students that he. did not 
■ represent their interests. Following that Wednesday night, a top-scale secret 
meeting was, held by Karenga! s organisation in the. Black Qongress building. An 
unusually heavy guard wot ported around the building and all members of the. Black 
Qongress not member* of US organisation were asked to leave ike building. The. 
folloti>ing Friday ike incident occurred at UQLA, One bit of information presented 
to ike. Los Angeles §rand Jury and substantially verified by myself L4 that one of 
' the statements that led to ike indictment was by a student of UQLA, who told ike 
§rand Jury of. hearing a representative of Karenga's organisation state on ike 
Wednesday prior to ike. shooting: "If -something goes docn at UQLA, we are going to 
have to off Bunchy. " 

Now ike slaying at UQLA points up a very serious breach between Karenga's 
stated philosophy arid his actual activities. It is known and substantiated by 
Los Angeles Police Department intelligence, reports that Karenga transports his 
simbas and oihers to a shooting range in Patmdale, Qalifornia, twice meekly. The 
Stiner broihers and Qlaude Hubert, ike alleged trigger men, are knoan to be ike ' 
• .top marksmen of the US organisation, Karenga also has his men go through extensive 
jjudo training and karate training. It is known and conceded that Karenga *s men 
are always armed, and ikcre Jut no record of any of his men ever being picked up 
on a concealed weapons charge, ' 

■ An incident which occurred in Newark, New Jersey, told to me by Louis Lomax, 
has it that while Karenga and a group of ten of his members were in a motel in 
Newark, New Jersey, ike cleaning maid found guns In ike motel room and called; 

ike Newark police, A call from Newark to Qhief of Police Tom fteddin in Los Angeles 
simply produced a statement by Reddin that he was cware that the group was armed

and io -leave them alone, Following the shooting at UQLA and during the Crand 
$ury investigation which ted to the indictment of /live US members, there was a^** 
♦ Confrontation outride the courtroom between approximately ten members of US and 
four m&nbcrs of the Black Panther Tatty. The. US member thn.ecJ.ened the Black 
r anther members and backed them against the wall through a series, of karate-type 
moves. At the point that the Panthers began to defend themselves, the. Lot Angeles 
Police Department -- which had been witnessing the whole situation ~ stepped in 
a/id threatened to arrest the. menbers of the Black Panther Party for disturbing 
the peace* The. Slack Panther Party La of the opinion thai US organisation had the 
protection of the police and thai the police one using. US organisation to provoke 
the Panthers Into a move so that the Police Department can wipe out the Black 
PantheA movement in Los Angeles, The Panthers point, out thai to date no weapons 
have been seized from US organisation, though US is carrying weapons around daily. 

There la a number of alleged beatings of Black Panthers by US members since 
the UQLA shooting. Raymond Hewitt, alias fliasai, who was a member of Robaire's 
organi^aiion, noted earlier in thla report and wounded J/i the Thanksgiving shoot- 
out, also earlier reported here, who is now a top official in the Black Panther 
Party of Southern Qalifonnia due to the deaths of Qarier and //uggins, was 
assaulted on last Tuesday, bu four members of US organisation, Los Angeles Police 
Department ambulance service refused to take him to the hospital, sotting that he , 
was not sufficiently injured and he should see a private physician. The Black 
Alumni Association of UQLA has issued a public statement asking for more police 
protection for black students on UQLA Campus from, intimidation by US organisation. 

US organisation, at that point, has little community support. In fad, 
Karenga had developed a sizable following in the community by virtue of his 
Intellcctuallsing of black awareness. However, many people in the community sou 
Karenga as a peaceful intellectual militant, /his situation has changed. It is 
very doubtful at this time that Karenga will be able io function effectively in the 
town again, Thla opinion Is based upon conversation with activists in the move- 
ment, leaders of /J BSU's in Southern Qalifonnia and with the guys in the streets — 
meaning the hustlers, the ex- convicts, some of the street gangs and others. It 
should be noted here thai Al Prentlce"Bunchy n Qarter was a I 6- time loser and \ 
whereas the Police Department is considering 'the possibility of retaliation on the 
pari of the Black Panther Party, their great fear is the street element' would make 
moves io advance QaAter's death. For thai reason there is a fear thai Karenga' s 
life is In jeopardy and In danger In the Qity of Los Angeles, • .

At this point it La estimated thai KaAenga 's membcAship La actually oAound 
/00 u Tkene one, howevcA, oihens who oac hoi manbeAs of. US OAgani^ation^buCiaJho 
i- oat influenced in a pAogAanmaiic waif. by ihe teachings of KaAenga and ike ■Aituals 
i of ihe OAganLgation, About one-third of these 100 people, aAe female memdens of 
- the ongani^ation indoctrinated io be docile and submissive. Approximately ^0 of 
' „ these are simbas oa young. lions. The organisation holds Sunday meetings known at 
■ soul sessions. They also have weekly meetings known as advocacy, at which time 
their beliefs in ihe. doctnines and Aituals of US organisation are neinfoAccd, 
£anlieA in ihe development of ihe organisation Aituals were highly cultic, bui 
lately ike. organisation has taken on many of the characteristics of ihe black 
chuAch and added nock and aoII music and otheA social patterns of the black 
community* ihe organisation uses ihe publication called "The Quotable KaAenga' 
oa ihe textbook of its ideology. \ ' ' ' 

KaAenga has fed many member of hit organisation, into community organisations^ 
businesses and political Campaigns, To do this he has abandoned ike. custom of hav- 
ing all of his men wean, bald heads. They one not forced io wear bubas at all 
time* now. The ladies in hLi organisation a/ie not asked io wean traditional 
African garb and in fact one now allowed to wean miniskirts and dress fashionably. 
KaAenga s mode of operation Li one of taking the high road veAbally, speaking of 
. peace and culiu/ial nationalism. Ho(ocven t while laying this, his organisation La 
panamilitaAy in nature and La knodn. to t deal in intimidation and physical assault. 

It La strongly believed that KaAenga La on ihe payroll offilatjOA San Voniy 
and it La io be noted thai Mayor Horty issued a maJoA proclamation necently . 
alleging a communist conspiracy in the colleger and in ihe black community in. ' 
terms of the black movement. The statement was neleased on a Thursday. On 
the Sunday prion to that Aelease Kancnga held a ma^oA lecture at the Black (ongness 
building entitled "The. Tied Book -- lis fielcvance on iAAelevancy. " The content of 
that lecture was highly synonymous with ihe content of the. Voriy report. KaAenga 
has developed ihe technique now of being behind ihe scenes and directing people 
who have legitimate acceptance in the. community. 

In ienms of payroll, a projection of KaAenga' s expenditures fon ihe WeaA 
{^68 would be as folloas: In nent fon himself and members of hLi organisation fox

from paragraph two, line four, "which was attended by 10 of the 
brothers." Also delete the signature, making the letter anony- 
mous. 

Since we do not know the exact method of communica- 
tion between Karenga and the head of US's women's auxiliary, it 
is felt we should not use her name as the signer of the letter. 
Deleting the phrase set out above will make it less certain 
this letter was written by a person at the meeting in question. 

San Diego is authorized to send the amended letter, 
inless there is a compelling reason not to utilize the above 
changes. In that case, the Bureau should be so advised. Take 
:he usual precautions to insure this letter cannot be traced to 
the Bureau.

Letter to SAC, San Diego 
' I COUNTERINTELLIGENCE PROGRAM, 

BLACK NATIONALIST - HATE GROUPS 
(US) 
100-448006 



For the information of Los Angeles, the letter to 
be sent the head of US complains about the presence of three 
white men at an US meeting, which is contrary to the policy 
of the head of US, Ron Karenga. Los Angeles should be alert 
for results of this letter. 

NOTE: 



This letter might thus cause problems for the 
leadership -of the San Diego chapter; however, as' set out, 
the letter was specific In nature and was signed. Karenga 
could thus have checked with the alleged signer of the 
letter to determine it was fictitious. US is a black 
extremist organization with headquarters in Los Angeles, 
California.

In a notebook found in the possession of a known US 
member, KARENGA has written that, concerning white people, 
.they are divided into known categories. The "faddist" who is 
a white liberal that wants to identify with whatever field is 
a fad, the "guilt ridden" who is described as a white boy who 
says that white people have treated black people like animals 
and he wants to help black people obtain their freedom, 
and numerous other categories. 

KARENGA has also talked on numerous occasions that 
no white people are to be allowed at any meetings of US. In 
view of the fact that three white individuals attende d a 
meeting of US, presumably at the invitation of 4BSEBA it is 
felt that the following letter directed to RON KARENGA might 
be beneficial in casting doubt upon the reliability and 
subordination of VS9t The letter will read:

interest and is considered by San Diego to be reliable and 
discreet. If US has not compiled with the law in filing this 
, form, IRS prosecution would help neutralize this extremist group.

I. OPERATIONS UNDER CONSIDERATION 

At the present time there are two requests for 
counterintelligence action awaiting Bureau evaluation. Both 
of these requests concernthe US organization. 



In view of the recent killing of BPP member SYLVESTER 
BELL, a new cartoon is being considered in the hopes that 
it will assist in the continuance of the rift between BPP 
and US. This cartoon, or series of cartoons, will be similar 
in nature to those formerly approved by the Bureau and will 
be forwarded to the Bureau for evaluation and approval 
immediately upon their completion. i'i •/ '

II. 



OPERATIONS BEING EFFECTED 




BPP Breakfast Programand ^^^^^^^ ^^^r^rticipation therein. 
This particular call, originally scheduled to be third in 
a series of three calls, was made first due to the fact that 
this particular call appears to be more timely at this time 
in order to achieve maximum affect. Tangible results 
concerning this activity appear in the next section of this 
letter. 

The intensive interview program of BPP members is 
continuing in the San Diego Division. The specific tangible 
results thus far observed concerning the interview program 
are very difficult to assess. 



III. 



TANGIBLE RESULTS 



The BPP Breakfast Program appears to be floundering 
in San Diego due to lack of public support and unfavorable 
publicity concerning it. It is noted that it has presently 
been temporarily suspended. Therefore, it was felt that 
placing the above mentioned anonymous call to the Bishop at 
this particular time might be a significant factor in 
precluding the resumption of the program. The information 
: to the Bishop appeared to be favorably received and he seemed 
to be quite concerned over the fact that one of his Priests 
was deeply involved in utilization of church facilities for 
this purpose. This matter, of course, will be closely 
followed for further anticipated developments concerning the 
Breakfast Program. 

Shootings, beatings, and a high degree of unrest 
continues to prevail in the ghetto area of southeast San Diego. 
Although no specific counterintelligence action can be 
credited with contributing to this over-all situation, it is 
felt that a substantial amount of the unrest is directly 
attributable to this program. 







SD 100-14192 




Information concerning the possibility of US 
headquarters being bombed on the weekend of 8/30/69, was 
furnished to the San Diego Police Department prior to the 
actual bombing. It is felt that the furnishing of this 
information might have been a major factor in precluding 
any injury of innocent persons at the time the actual 
bombing took place. 



IV. 



DEVELOPMENTS OF COUNTERINTELLIGENCE INTEREST 



The "gang type" war between the BPP and US 
continues at the present time. 

It also appears there is increased unrest within 
the ranks of the BPP in San Diego and reports have been 
received concerning very severe punishments being administered 
to mombers who do not perform as t ho leaders of the party 
believe they should. For example ,dGMBE[&UBB£B^Bfrias 
reportedly been severely beaten by BPP officials for failure 
to return gunfire at the assailant at the time JOHN SAVAGE 
was fatally shot .«$SBB9BBBESBSHBfc was "beaten up" for 
failure to abide by instructions given her by visiting BPP 
members of the Los Angeles area. Other similar incidents have 
also been noted, all apparently in an effort to establish 
more rigid discipline within the ranks of the party. 

On 8/30/69, the new US headquarters building at 
4183 Market Street, San Diego, was bombed through utilization 
of a pipe bomb. The device was made of l£" pipe, capped at 
both ends, and filled with shotgun powder. No injuries were 
sustained but damage was extensive. No suspects have been 
arrested. However, it is believed that the BPP is responsible 
for the bombing. Efforts are being made to determine how 
this situation can be capitalized upon for the benefit of 
the Counterintelligence Program and any possibilities will - 
immediately be submitted for approval by the Bureau.

Re: New Haven letter, 9/3/69. 



1. Operations Under Consideration 

No definite counterintelligence program is being 
considered pending reorganization of the Connecticut chapters. 



2. Operations Being Effected (J:- !\ 

As authorized by the Bureau, New Haven will continue 
to furnish public source data to approved press representatives. 
New Haven will remain alert for those incidents or circumstances 
which may lend themselves to counterintelligence exploitation. 

The New Haven Division is pursuing those investigations 
which will lead to successful prosecution of BPP members and 
leadership at the Federal or local level. 

PBPP, Boston, was 
apprehended on"a""PeWral bench warrant at BPP New Haven 
Headquarters by FBI Agents, assisted by U.S. Marshals and local 
authorities, on 9/12/69, on charges of threatening a Federal 
officer and intimidating a witness. The bench warrant was 
issued following the return of a two count indictment by a 
Federal Grand Jury on 9/11/69 (New Haven file 26-15342 refers) . 

This arrest enabled the apprehending Agents to search 
BPP New Haven Headquarters to perform a cursory search for 
weapons. None were located, leading to the conclusion that 
either BPP New Haven members have not acquired any weapons or 
, that more probably these weapons are stored in another^lgcation.

3. Tangible Results 

Of counterintelligence interest is the fact that 
reliable informants have advised that BPP New Haven had 
planned to renta store for a BPP office sometime in 
September. ^B9SS^fefc during the arrest by FBI Agents on 9/12/69, 
was also arrested by New Haven police for breach of the peace, 
and abusing a police officer for his conduct at the time 
of the arrest. A $200 bond was set by the New Haven authorities 
and was posted by the BPP New Haven. A reliable so urce adv ised 
that the BPP had intended to use the $200 used for mm 
bond for the rent of another apartment to use as a "crib" and 
were not now financially able to rent the apartment. 

4. Developments of Counterintelligence Interest 

It is apparent that BPP National has elected to 
reorganize BPP New Haven, probably in anticipation of the 
upcoming murder trial involving Chairman BOBBY SEALE and 
, other Panthers. By separate communications, the Bureau has 
been advised that several BPP functionaries from the New 
York, Boston and Baltimore areas have been ordered into New 
Haven to organize. 

One recently arrived Panther from Boston, itf^B* 
1^0&l has been delegated to establish a B reakfas t for 
Children Program in New Haven. To this end^B9fthas initiated 
a program of sending letters and personally visiting several 
businesses in the New Haven area to solicit donations. This 
program will be aggressively followed and exploited if 
possible.

Enclosed for San Francisco is one copy of 
referenced communication. 

Baltimore recommends that anonymous letters 
be mailed to Huey P. Newton Indicating that Black Panther 
Party funds are being used for personal reasons. Anonymous 
communications are difficult to manage when being mailed to 
a Jail as in this matter. This is due to the fact that most 
jail officials will forward mail only from specific mailers. 
Baltimore should review files and otherwise consider 
recommending of specific counterintelligence proposals in / 
an effort to accomplish the same purpose. 

Referenced communication pointed out that Eldridge 
Cleaver has grown disenchanted with the BPP and is considering 
a return to the United States for the purpose of starting a 
new group. San Francisco should consider this information and 
if logical, forward a suggested anonymous letter expelling 
Cleaver from the BPP. Take no action without prior authority.

The Bureau has been advised previously that the 
only logical Cointelpro target in the Seattle Division is 
the Black Panther Party. Inasmuch as BPP activity during 
the Summer of 1969 has been practically non-existent and 
since the Seattle BPP organization appears to be directing 
their activities more along political lines, it does not 
appear that bi-weekly letters under the above caption are 
warranted at this time. 

Bureau permission is requested to submit letters 
under the above caption on a monthly basis rather than a

arrive in Detroit as advertised. 

On 9/6-7/69, members and fellow travelers of the

WILLIAMS. When he did not appear, the crowd was thrown into 
a state of confusion and anger; and MILTON HENRY cast about 
for some government or agency to blame. He was clearly 
not in control of the situation and his image with the 
membership must surely have suffered.

the BPP appeared to be In trouble both financially and 
politically. It also pointed out that the BPP was so 
desperate it was seeking alliances with such white groups

Society. Recipient offices were instructed to consider the

be considered concerning the formation of a new organization 
made up of ex-BPP members. Specific proposals should be 
forwarded to the .Bureau for consideration and approval, , i, 
No specific action should be taken without prior Bureau 
approval. Such things as the expulsion of BPP leaders because 
of their association with ex-BPP members should be considered. 
The participation of each office is expected and necessary in 
order that the BPP organization; is thoroughly disrupted. 



NOTE : 

We have previously issued instructions to recipient 
offices pointing out that the BPP is in trouble. We are requesting 
these offices to advise of positive steps taken to utilize this 
situation for constructive counterintelligence. In addition, 
we are pointing out recently received information to the effect 
that a new group is being planned. We are calling for specific 
counterintelligence proposals concerning this.

Re NY report of 

"JEWISH DEFENSE LEAGUE- RACIAL MATTERS 
Bu letter to NY, 7/25/69- 



______ captioned 

m file 157-3^63; 






:^ 



Referenced report has been reviewed by the NYO 
in an effort to target one individual within the Jewish 
Defense League (JEDEL) who would be the suitable recipient 
of information furnished on an anonymous basis that the 
Bureau wishes to disseminate and/or use for future counter- 
intelligence purposes. 



:| 



NY is of the opinion that the individual within 
JEDEL who would most suitably serve the above stated purpose 
would be Rabbi MEIR KAHANE, a Director of JEDEL. It is 
noted that Rabbi KAHANE's background as a writer for the 
$T\ NY newspaper "Jewish Press" would enable him to give wide- 
^A spread coverage of anti-Semetic statements made by the BPP 
$ and other Black Nationalist hate groups not only to members 
^y» of JEDEL but to other individuals who would take cognizance 
of such statements. 



^ 
^-"? 

^ 



\ In order to prepare a suggested initial communi- 
cation from the anonymous source to Rabbi KAHANE which would 
"establish rapport between the two, it is felt that this contact 
• should not be limited to the furnishing of factual information 
of interest to the aims of JEDEL because the NYO does not 
feel that JEDEL could be motivated to act as called for in 
referenced Bureau letter if the information gathered by the 
NYO concerning antl-semitism and other matters were furnished 
to that organization without some embellishment. x

'# 



wy^ ioo-i6ii4o ■ ■ : : 

For example it i6 felt that JEDEL is aware 1- 
of the majority of information concerning the factual 
views of the BPP and other Black Nationalist groups through . 
public sources of information such as the BPP newspaper, 
"The Black Panther", and to furnish such information from 
an"anonymous source ' would either be dismissed by JEDEL as 
trivial or attributed to some other party who may have an 
interest in causing JEDEL to act against such groups as 
the BPP. 

In view of the above comments the following is 
submitted as the suggested communication to be used to 
establish rapport between the anonymous source and the 
selected individual associated with JEDEL: 

"Dear Rabbi Kahane: 

I am a Negro man who is 48 years old and served 
his country in the U.S. Army in WW2 and worked as a truck 
driver with "the famous red-ball express" in Gen. Eisenhour's 
Army in France and Natzi Germany. One day I had a crash 
with the truck I was driving, a 2£ ton truck, and was injured 
real bad. I was treated and helped by a Jewish Army Dr. 
named "Roths te in" who helped me get better again. 

Also I was encouraged to remain in high school 
for two years by my favorite teacher, Mr. Katz. I have 
always thought Jewish people are good and they have helped 
me all my life. That is why I become so upset about my 
oldest son who is a Black Panther and very much against 
Jewish people. My oldest son just returned from Algers in 
Africa where he met a bunch of other Black Panthers from 
all over the world. He said to me that they all agree that 
the Jewish people are against all the colored people and 
that the only friends the colored people have are the Arabs. 

I told my child that the Jewish people are the 
friends of the colored people but he calls me a Tom and 
says I'll never be anything better than a Jew boy's slave.

*^ , ^ st nl 6 ht ™y b °y had a meeting at my house 
with six of his Black Panther friends. From the wav 
they talked it sounded like they had a plan to force 
Jewish store owners to give them money or they would 
drop a bomb on the Jewish store. Some of the money 
they get will be sent to the Arabs in Africa. 

They left books and pictures around with Arab 
writing on them and pictures of Jewish aoldiers killing 
Arab babys. I think they are going to give these away 
at Negro Christian Churchs. 

*u< , I tnou 6 n vou might be able to stop this. I 
think I can get some of the pictures and books without 
getting myself J.n trouble. I will send them to vou if 
you are interested. 

I would like not to use my real name at this 
time. 

A friend" 

: It is. further suggested that a second communication 
be sent to Rabbi KAHANE approximately one week after the 
above described letter which will follow the same foremat, 
but will contain as enclosures some BPP artifacts such as 
pictures of BOBBY SEALE, ELDRIDGE CLEAVER, a copy of a BPP 

■ newspaper, etc. It is felt that a progression of letters 
should then follow which would further establish rapport 
with the JEDEL and eventually culminate in the anonymous 
letter writer requesting some response from the JEDEL 
recipient of these letters.

Re San Francisco airtel dated 8/26/69. 

On 8/27/69, newspaper column of WILLIAM F. BUCKLEY 
was mailed anonymously to seven addressees who have had some 
connection with BPP Breakfast for Children Program. 

This office has suggested the anonymous furnishing 
of information concerning BPP bank accounts to the mother of 
a young boy killed by a truck utilized by the BPP. San Fran- 
cisco was instructed by the Bureau to determine another way 
in which the information could be furnished without causing 
further distress to the mother of the deceased. 

A further review of San Francisco Police records 
in this mat ter reflect tha t police reports concerning the 
accident n f ^8EJP?fWWHIffBft were furnished to the District 
Attorney's Office and that office shortly after the accident 
advised that they were taking no further act ion and were s o

Developments of Counterintelligence Interest 



Internal struggle within the Black Panther party 
(BPP) at Charlotte, N.C., appears to be dividing the group. 
Members continue to be arrested on local charges resulting 
in cost for bond and attorney fees , however, prosecution 
has not been completed. The civil suit by the BPP at 
Charlotte against law enforcement agencies as mentioned 
in Charlotte letter dated 6/24/69 has not been adjudicated. 

In connection with the Counterintelligence Program - 
New Left (Charlotte file 100-10483) and the article 
appearing in the 8/16/69 edition of the "Guardian"concerning 

between SDS and BPP in the Charlotte Division. Although 
the matter is being handled as an operation of the Counter- 
intelligence Program - New Left, it will have a direct result 
concerning the Criminal Informant Program of the Black 
Nationalist - Hate Groups if successful.

ReNYlet to Bureau, 5/23/69- 




Operations Under Consideration: 



The NYO is presently considering an attempt to contact 
and establish some rapport with the Jewish Defense League (JEDEL) 
in order to be in a position to furnish JEDEL with information 
the Bureau wishes to see utilized in a counterintelligence 
technique. 

' The aforementioned contact with JEDEL will be made by 
an anonymous letter sent to someone in a leadership capacity with / 
that organization. 

A suggested communication establishing the necessary 
connection between JEDEL and the fictious source will be sent I 
to the Bureau by separate cover letter for the Bureau's consideratio: 
and approval. 

The NYO is also considering preparing a letter entitled 
"A Black Man's Letter from Cuba" which will deal with the 
dissatisfaction of members of the Black Panther Party in Cuba today. 
This letter will be forwarded to the Bureau for their comments and 
approval before any decision is made as to its distribution. 

2. Operations Being Submitted / 

On 6/20/69, an anonymous letter was sent to the United 
Federation of Teachers in New York City after Bureau approval was 
granted on 6/13/69. 

As of this date, no tangible results have come to the 
attention of the NYO. ... ,

for mailing to those individuals whose names appear are a list 
furnished to New York by the St. Louis Office by letter dated 
6/27/69. 

This mailing will take place during the weeks of 
September 7 and 14, 1969.

: information could be utilized in effecting a counterintelligence 
proposal which would discredit the BPP in the New York area. 

After receiving prior Bureau approval, £ 
Pof the Nassau Catholic Archdiocese of New York, was contacted 
722/69 and discreetly advised of the "Breakfast for Children 
Program" conducted by the BPP which was being held at All Saints

tion in the past, advised that the "Breakfast for Children Program" 
sponsored by the BPP and staged at All Saints Roman Catholic Chuch

ReSFairtel 8/14/69 concerning Helvin Jenkins and 
his involvement in an auto fatality. 

The counterintelligence suggestion proposed by 
San Francisco, in referenced airtel, has definite merit and 
represents considerable thought. It is not believed that an 
anonymous phoneicaU should be made to the mother of the child 
killed by IBBlB BERT his could cause her extreme mental distress. 
The idea o™Turn"snlng information concerning BPP bank accounts 
to representatives of the victim should be followed up. 

San Franc iso should attempt to determine another 
way in which this information can be furnished and which will 
not cause further distress to the deceased victim's relatives. 
It may be that an executor or administrator has been appointed 
•to conduct a wrongful death action on behalf of the deceased. 
This information could anonymously be furnished to these 
representatives and be incorporated in any law suit maintained. 
San Francisco should give this matter some additional thought 
and advise the Bureau of the results. Take no specific action 
without prior Bureau authority.

An article appeared in the "Oregon Jc-u^ 

Portland daily newspaper on 8/8/69, concerning £_| 

student at Southern Methodist University, Dallas, Texas, who 
has been working during the summer in Portland's Kegro 
community und ej ^tyes nonsnrsh i n of the Urban League. In 
this article, ^B^HSf was quoted as saying he believes that 
the Black Panther Party represents the black community's 
best hope for achieving change and he considers the BPP 
to be the "power structure" best fitted to confront white 
institutions. 

The Ballas Of f ic^^ajjpecn requested to furnish 
background information on ^fflBfffflF and to establish prior 
connections with the BPP. Portland will consider 
utilizing this information for counterintelligence purposes. 
Portland has made counterintelligence suggestion regarding 
widening the rift between SDS and the BPP. 

(2) O perations Being Put Into Effect 

By letter dated 7/9/69, Portland suggested 
anonymous mailing of copies of an article appearing in 
the "Washington Post" for June 19, 1969, captioned, 
"Panthers: Are a Recital of Fear and Crime." 

By letter dated 7/28/69, the Bureau advised 
Portland that this suggestion is being utilized at this 
time by several Offices where "breakfast programs" or 
"liberation schools" are being conducted. For the information 
of the Bureau neither of these programs are underway in 
Portland, and Portland is not in a position to assess the 
effectiveness of this program.

QUARTERLY PROGRESS LETTER 

During the past three months, activities by 
Black Nationalists at colleges and high schools in 
Mississippi have been nonexistent since schools, for 
the most part, have only had activities limited to 
summer school with small attendance thereat.

ghetto area of Jackson.

has, except for two-day visit in August, been away from 
the State of Mississippi since May, 1969. He has been 
active in other States, especially Pennsylvania, in pro- 
moting the "Black Manifesto." In this latter regard, he 
has presented the Manifesto at churches and before church 
groups.

Jackson, continues to be attempting to obtain member;

I. OPERATIONS UNDER CONSIDERATION 

With school commencing in September, 1969, 
attention will be directed toward Black Nationalist student 
groups at colleges and high schools in Mississippi for any 
indications that they are being dominated by black extremists 
or preaching black extremist activities. Any positive 
information developed in this regard will be carefully 
scrutinized for possible counterintelligence actions. 

The Jackson Division is continuing to follow 
closely, developments regarding the possible withdrawal 
of funds from the Jackson Human Rights Pro iect. w hich is 
the name given to activities of Maa^ p^^ ^l^^y and 
associates in the J ackson ar ea. Any derogatory information 
developed regarding *^^^^p which is of public knowledge, 
will be channelized to appropriate authorities following 
normal procedure for counterintelligence measure dissemina- 
tion. 

While NOI activities in the State are being 
closely followed, it is felt that counterintelligence 
actions at present could possibly serve to unify these 
elements at a time when they are experiencing serious 
internal difficulties in the recruiting and finance areas.

II. OPERATIONS BEING AFFECTED 

III. TANGIBLE RESULTS 

(a) The Jackson Division, on July 30 - 31, 1969, 
conducted a police - community relations two-day seminar at 
the Jackson Police Department, at which about 65 officers 
attended. Among topics discussed by FBI instructors were 
Black Nationalist groups and the fact that police officers 
should be alert to any criminal activities or acts of 
violence by Negroes affiliated with black extremist groups. 

In the early morning hours of July 31, 1969, 
two of the officers who attended the session on July 30, 
1969, were on duty in a Negro ghetto area of Jackson. 
They observed three bearded, militant-looking Negroes in 
an older model Chevrolet cruising in the vicinity of a 
large gun shop in the ghetto area. 

After closely observing this car for a few 
minutes, It became apparent to the officers that the 
individuals were "up to no good." They subsequently 
stopped the car on a traffic violation and thereafter 
determined that the car was stolen from New Orleans, 
Louisiana, and that one of the occupants was a convicted 
felon in possession of a fully-loaded carbine. These 
three individuals were subsequently identified as being 
affiliated with the RNA in the New Orleans, Louisiana, 
area. 

The driver of the vehicle was charged with 
ITSMV and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon; 
one of the passengers was charged with ITSMV and the 
third passenger was charged with misprison of a felony. 
All of these charges were Federal charges.

Division, sought for almost a year on bank robbery charges. 

All of the above three individuals are still in 
Federal custody in lieu of $5,000 bond on each charge. 
Jackson informants in the RNA have been publicizing, 
discreetly, their "shock and amazement" that such hard 
core criminal types had been allowed into the RNA, thereby 
reflecting the RNA in a bad light in the South. 

All of the above arrests were given wide dissemi-

RACIAL INTELLIGENCE 





Re Bureau airtel to Albany, 3/4/68. / 

The following is a ninety-day summary of activities within 
the New Haven Division relating to captioned program: 

1. Operations Under Consideration 

The New Haven, Hartford, and Bridgeport, Connecticut, Chapters 
of the Black Panther Party (BPP) remain disorganized and without 
proper leadership. Counterintelligence operations, therefore, 
are being considered as the opportunity arises. 

2. Operations Being Effected 

As authorized by the Bureau, New Haven will continue to 
furnish public source data to approved press representatives. 
New Haven will remain alert for those incidents or circumstances 
which may lend themselves to counterintelligence exploitation. 
One example of this was an anonymous letter mailed to WILLIAM F. 
BUCKLEY, JR., setting forth Yale University sanctions of BPP 
activities on the Yale campus during Hay 1969. 

The New Haven Division is remaining alert for violations 
committed by members of the BPP and is aggressively conducting 
such investigation to uncover criminal violations. During 
the preceeding ninety day period, investigation conducted by 
the Now Haven Division has led to the arrest of BOBBY GEORGE 
SEALE, Chairman of the BPP for Murder, ^nspiracvtojjgrder , 
Kidnaping- -and Conspira cy fiPnJpfflfllftfi Kidnaping ; gl <^Q 

|of the BPP along wifn 
pter, on ITSMV charges; and 

Ion violation of the State Firearms 

fonlrol Assistance Act.

3. Tangible Results 

On tbe national level the arrest of SEALS has certainly disrupted 
the entire BPP organization and caused an additional drain of tbe 
BPP funds. 

On tbe local level, continual pressure on the rank and file 
members as well as the leadership by tbe FBI and local authorities 
has sparked a flurry of demonstrations and an influx of BPP 
organizers. It is worthy to note that the majority of the Black 
community and white community is not giving the Party any visible 
support. In short, they are apparently having to "go it alone" 
without community assistance. 

4. Developments of CI Interest 

The arrest of SEALE and bis anticipated extradition will 
undoubtedly bring more BPP national representatives into the 
New Haven area. In fact, reliable informants have already 
begun to report that several noted BPP functionaries have already 
arrived. 

According to these informants, the BPP leadership is concerned 
with finding the "leak" within the remaining New Baven Chapter. 
Informant coverage to date has reflected that if the Informant 
is found, he will be executed in a fashion similar to the murder 
of ALEX RACKLEY. 

New Baven is anticipating an emergence of renewed militancy of 
the Party in tbe New Haven area within the upcoming quarter. 
It is expected that this militancy will be beaded not by local 
members of the BPP but by the National leadership and 
functionaries from surrounding state chapters.

Remylet to the Bureau, 6/17/69. 

There have been no counterintelligence 
programs or operations in connection with Black Nationalist 
groups of the Buffalo Division since submission of 
referenced letter. The racial situation in the Buffalo 
Division has been relatively quiet during the reporting 
period and no effective counterintelligence devices 
have presented themselves. A significant change in the '.■■':. 
Black Nationalist organizations in the Buffalo Division 
has occurred with the deactivation of the Black Panther 
Party (BPP) Chapter at Rochester, New York. 

The only Black Nationalist organization with 
organized membership in the Buffalo Division is the 
•Nation of Islam (NOI), which operates the Mosque as 
Muhammad^ Mosque. Number 23 (MM #23) at Buffalo and an 
auxiliary Mosque at Rochester, New York, as MM #23-B. 
The membership and activities at MM #23 and MM #23-B 
are well known and informant coverage is most adequate. 

Agents having responsibility for coverage of 
Black Nationalist groups in the Buffalo Division are 
continually vigilant for organizational efforts of Black 
Nationalist groups and for opportunities to effect some 
form of counterintelligence. A watchful and continuous 
effort to develop an effective counterintelligence program 
with the Black, Nationalist groups continues in the Buffalo 
Division.

Re Los Angeles letter to Bureau, 6/3/69. 

For Information concerning the counterintelligence

Bureau's attention is directed to Los Angeles letters dated 
6/3, 6/16, 6/26, 7/16, 7/25, 7/30 and 8/26/69. In accordance 
with Bureau instructions, the counterintelligence operations 
against the BPP are not being set forth in this letter. 

1 . Operations Under Consideration 

The Los Angeles Office continually follows the 
violations of the anti-riot and gun control laws by black 
nationalists looking toward prosecution of these individuals 
under Federal and State statutes. 

A continuing survey of the telephone toll calls of 
various black nationalist leaders is being made under existing 
Bureau policy to determine what counterintelligence programs 
might be put into effect. 

2. Operations Being Effected 

The interview program within the black nationalist 
movement "is being continued on a regular basi3 and this has 
caused some concern and disruption among the members.

ReBulets captioned as above and dated 7/2,11/69. 

As noted in relet of 7/11/69, Milwaukee has developed 
info that the BPP is operating the Breakfast for Children Program 
in Milwaukee. BPP members have approached numerous churches about 
using their facilities for this program but to date they have 
been unsuccessful* 

In addition, the BPP has solicited money and food 
from numerous grocery stores in the Milwaukee area. Milwaukee 
sources indicate that the BPP may be receiving as much as $500 
per week in money and food contributions. 



b 



It is felt that copies of the articles attached to 
relet should be mailed anonymously to main offices of grocery 
stores which are already involved or who may become involved in 
contributing to the breakfast program. It is also felt that 
copies should be sent to churches in the area which are being 
approached by the BPP for the purpose of obtaining facilities 
for the breakfast program. 

Since the Breakfast for Children Program and other 
BPP activities have been widely publicized in Milwaukee, there 
would be no reason for recipients of the above material to 
identify the Bureau as the source. 

It is recommended that the following churches and 
grocery stores be furnished with copies of attachments to •. /<

Re Miami airtels to the Director (copy to 
Chicago), 8/22/69, and 8/25/69. 

Referenced airtel dated 

the authority to assist I_ 

WCKT-TV, a local Miami station, in preparation 
_„ _ Jocumentary-type expose of the NOI in the south 
Florida area, the objective being to show how the NOI 
takes money from the black people of the Miami area and 
gives nothing in return, hiami requested the Bureau 
.and Chicago to furnish photographs or films of NOI 
meetings, conventions, or other affairs. 

gjgg^$ j^^ii£ objectives are not clear in that it 
cannot be determined whether his expose is to be confined 
to the Miami area or is to be national in scope. However, 
the following is set forth for consideration: 

It would appear thatj pjjgagil& t would desire to 
present a current picture of tne actual inner workings of 
the NOI. He mentions exposing misuse of donations and 
receipts from the sale of 'tiuhammad Speaks" (MS). This 
Is most difficult to do from Interviews of the membership

as they consider donations they make much as would regular 
church goers. It is recognized ELIJAH MUHAtfi AD and other . 
NOI leaders live lavishly. This has been exposed and is 
well known. It had no discernible effect on the NOI 
membership. It is known, and has been reported in semi- 
annual NOI reports available to Miami, that the NOI, for 
: the past several' years, has been using cash accrued from . 
land appreciation, donations, and receipts from the sale •, 
of MS to buy farms in both Georgia and Michigan, to buy 
v . buildings in Chicago, and converting same into restaurants, 
stores, etc. 

Investigation has determined these are registered 
in the names of Progressive Land Developers, Incorporated, 
..'. and/or United Dynamic Corporation, both incorporated in the 
i^;-* State of Illinois and both having prominent NOI leaders 
;;^' as members Of the Board of Directors. - 

Enclosed for Miami is a Xerox copy of an article' 
entitled, "Black Muslims Set Their Sights on the Supremacy 
of Capitalism" by WILLIAM JONES, which article appeared in 
the "Chicago Sunday Tribune," 1/26/69, page 1. This 
article sets forth full details regarding the NOI's use 
of movies received. It is felt the pertinent development . 
• Vr is the NOI using non-religious corporations to invest the 
'.\V,*. monetary receipts - the investments not being titled under 
$■<-'■ the name NOI, Muhammad's Temple Number 2, etc. When 
■;'■[':. ELIJAH MUH/MMAD becomes incapacitated or passes on, what 

.-' happens to these holdings insofar as the membership is 
concerned? 

| may desire to contact the "Chicago Tribune" 
as to whetner ne can use the above article. 

Chicago has not for several years conducted any 
photographic surveillances of NOI co Qffi^Wfl s ' etc., due 
to racial tensions. It would appear j pjppjalaa coiil d obtain 
such photographs from issues of M S wh ich are available to 
Miami. It would further appear jgjlala could purchase 
ELIJAH MUH/MMAD's LP records, whTchare advertised in MS

weekly or could contact Radio Station WFAB, Miami -Ft. 
Lauderdale, for taped speeches by MUH/MMAD as his tapes 
are advertised as played thereon at 5:30 a.m. each Sunday. 
It is also noted KUH/Mi AD* s books, "Message to the Black 
Man" and "How to Eat to Live," are both advertised in MS. : 
Of .course, MS is the best source' of NOI activity., ' '-'*.''■ 

It would appearfSpf^B might consider direct 
contact with various NOI ministers in the Miami area as 
past experience has shown they welcome chances to be 
interviewed. If former members who are willing to discuss 
the situation could be located, this should be considered. 

At the present time, Chicago does not desire to 
rehash some of %he exposes that occurred around. the time 
of the defection of MALCOLM X LITTLE as top level sources 
could be endangered and future activities thereof curtailed. 

Referenced Miami airtel dated 8/25/69, reflected 
JLs attempting to locate statements, of prominent 
v^rnment and police officials regarding dangers created 
,by the NOI. Again, Chicago agrees that the constant hate 
teachings against the white race is most undesirable. This 
is especially true as it relates to the children of the 
membership who are indoctrinated from birth on to hate the 
white man. 

In an effort to keep ffiSfiHSsS proposed documentary 
current, the following observations are set forth: 



Report ~* ^H^BSJBaBsgPda ted 6/20/69, pages 
49 - 53, copy available to Miami, sets forth full details 
regarding ELIJAH MUHAMMAD' s statements concerning his 
version of law and order; sets forth data regarding a 
meeting of the minds between the NOI and the Chicago Police 
Department; and relates details concerning plans by the 
National Society of Afro-American Policemen, New York City, 
to honor MUH/MMAD and the NOI in June, 1969. While this 
is in no way meant to infer the NOI is a useful, Integral

part of our society, it does infer a step forward may be ' 
occurring insofar as the NOI and police cooperation are 
concerned . 

Several years ago, Chicago utilized a local Federal 
Judge to speak out against the NOI. He has not been 
utilized in this regard since the murder of frALCOLM X LITTLE 
as it was not the Bureau's desire to involve him in a name- 
calling contest; It is felt this trend should continue. 

As you are aware, the NOI has carefully avoided 
any and all contact with other Black Nationalist groups and 
their involvements other than to call on them to join 
hUHAiMAD, the only divinely inspired leader of the black 
man. 

Chicago is not in possession of information as to 
whether the NOI Temple in Miami is operating a University 
of Islam for children of its membership, but whether it 
does or not- . mm&BM mav desire to consider interviews of 
NOI leaders in Miami regarding the indoctrination of the 
children, specifically, as it relates to their feelings towards 
the white man, the United States Government, etc. 

^^PBra^l ^^ may a l so desire to consider interviews of 
various local southern Florida police chiefs for their 
comments in this regard and also interviews of local prison 
officials relating to NOI activities therein.

In recent weeks a highly vocal group of young 
Puerto Ricans calling themselves the Young Lords have 
undertaken action in the north side Puerto Rican neighborhood. ■ 
This group is basically a youth gang, however, they have become 
active in neighborhood; matters particularly urban renewal 
; problems'' for the area. Information' available concerning the 
•Young Lords and its leaders is being reviewed with the end 
in mind of the possibility of developing a suitable counter- 
intelligence program concerning this group. V.'hen and if a 
suitable recommendation is developed, such will be provided 
to the Bureau in the event an effective action can be 
formulated.

Chicago at present has in effect the program 
authorized by the Bureau July 31, 1969, to mail copies

It is, as yet, too early to determine what, if any, effect .

4. DEVELOPMENTS OF COUNT ERINTELLIGE NCE INTEREST 

The recent statement of DAVID HILLIAUD, BPP, Chief 
of Staff, that the BPP will take action against SDS if they 
make "one more counter-revolutionary statement" would appear 
to indicate a widening of a rift between the .T3PP and SDS. 
This situation will be followed closely and where a 
counterintelligence effort would appear to have reasonably 
tangible potential, a suitable recommendation will be 
submitted. 

No counterintelligence action will be taken by 
Chicago without Bureau approval. . -■

Re Baltimore letter to Bureau dated 8/20/69 . 

During the two week period 9/13/69 - 3/29/69, 
there were no specific counterintelligence measures taken 
against the Black Panther Party (BPP). 

^^SKiiS^SSSB^B advised that although it has not 
bST^fficially announced that MELVIN NEWTON, a member of 
the BPP and the brother of HUEY P. NEWTON, Minis ter ■ of 
Defense, has been kicked out of the BPP and that HUEY P. 
NEWTON is possibly going to be kicked out of the Party in 
the near future, it is recommended that anonymous letters be 

i sent to HUEY P. NEWTON in jail to the effect that the Party 
leadership is; using funds raised for the Huey P. Newton 
Defense Fund for the selfish means of the high-ranking 
BPP leadership. It could also be mentioned that the orders 
that HUEY has been disseminating from his prison headquarters 
are being distorted to meet the desires of the present 
leadership. 

pa^^^^^^^^^also advised that ELDRIDGE CLEAVER,. 
MinUterof Inf ormat ion^f the BPP, has grown disenchanted 
with the BPP leadership and the running of the Party and is 

.soon to return to the United States and Join a group of ousted 

'members of the BPP and start a new organization. It is 
recommended in line with the aforementioned anonymous 
communications, that rumors should be started to the effect 
Ittot CLEAVER is not in agreement with the present leadership 
and that he is going to resign from the Party prior to his 
own announcement of breaking away from the BPP.

COUNTERINTELLIGENCE PROGRAM 
BLACK NATIONALIST - HATE GROUPS 
RACIAL INTELLIGENCE 



Re SL let to Bureau, 6/3/69. 

The following information is submitted regarding 
the counterintelligence activities (Black Extremists) by 
the St. Louis Division in the past 90 days: 

1. Operations Under Consideration 

By letter dated 7/11/69, this Division sent in 
a pamphlet entitled "STORM WARNINGS" which was prepared by 
the Division as though a "right-wing" organization locally 
had published it. It exposed and ridiculed local Black 
Extremists and Communists. Certain questions were raised 
by the Bureau in regard to the pamphlet and revisions are 
being sent by St. Louis with a view toward obtaining Bureau 
authority to initiate this counterintelligence program. 

2. Operations Being Effected 

By letter dated 6/3/69 to New York, the Bureau 
authorized New York to send an anonymous mailing of 
STAUTON LYNN's letter which criticized the Black Panther 
Party. St. L »uis letter to Bureau dated 6/27/69 provided 
New York with a list of 42 individuals and groups to which 
New York was to mail the letter. St. Louis sources have not 
reported any of, the individuals or groups receiving this 
letter but New York may not have completed this activity 
inasmuch as St. Louis included one of its confidential postal 
boxes in the list given to New York, and no such letter has 
been received at this box.

3. Tangible Results 

The counterintelligence program regarding the 
"Blackboard" newspaper handled this^yar^ifibythis Division 
apparently completely "deslxgau^d/L^^^H Ife^aM as a racial 
figure of any consequence . y|feg%^Pf who was an extremely 
active and vocal leader prior to this activity, is practically 
an "unknown" and has been completely neutralized. 

4. Developments of Counterintelligence Interest 

ACTION, a local Black activist group whose 
membership includes both Negroes and whites, is at the 
present time the only Black group of any significance other 
than the NOI . "This Division is considering the best way 
to exploit differences among the membership with a view 
toward decreasing the group's effectiveness. 

With the new school year starting soon, various 
Black and white student groups will be watched most closely 
for any attempts at violence. Any such group will be a 
target for counterintelligence activity and Bureau authority 
will be requested when positive plans are developed.

ReBulot 7/29/69 and SLlet 8/29/69. 

A review of referenced SLlet failed to disclose 
whether the production and distribution of this pamphlet 
would be a criminal violation because the author and pub- 
lisher are unidentified. In many jurisdictions it is a 
violation to produce and mail anonymous communications of 
a nature such as the proposed pamphlet. It is .not desirable 
that local authorities should ever have to conduct an 
investigation as a result of counterintelligence activity. 
St. Louis should determine this fact and advise the Bureau. 



W U; 



NOTE ; 

St. Louis has proposed the anonymous mailing of a 
pamphlet to approximately 50 persons and organizations in the 
St. Louis area. This pamphlet will be entitled "Storm Warnings" 
and Sbs designed to look like a Right wing publication. The 
pamphlet Itself Includes public source information on various 
leftists, student agitators and members of the Black Panther 
Party. Prior to authorizing this communication we are requesting 
information as to whether the production and subsequent mailing of 
this type of pamphlet is in and of itself a violation of any 
local criminal statute.

Remylet, 7-11-69, and Bulet, 7-29-69. 

j The pamphlet "Storm Warnings" has been reviewed 

by the St. Louis Division. Since the pamphlet will be mailed 
in Missouri to persons in Missouri only, the statutes of that 
state are at issue. Missouri statutes, Sections 559.410, 
559.430, and 559.440 concern libel and define same as the 
"malicious defamation of a person which is made public." 
There is no doubt that "Storm Warnings" would fall in that 
category. ' However, the statutes further stipulate "truth 
is a complete defense" against any libel charges. Since each ■'::■*-'. 
statement in the pamphlet contains a basis in fact any libel -' 
action is, therefore, negated. There are two additional factors 
which make any libel action unlikely. 1) The victims cannot 
take legal action against an unknown publisher (of Storm Warnings) 
and 2) Since the victims realize that the remarks are largely 
:true, they would be very reticent to further publicize the 
statements by instituting legal action. 

i :'•'"' In view of the above, St. Louis requests that authority 

be granted to initiate this counterintelligence activity, with 
the following changes to be made:
